WHAT OUR Members HAVE TO SAY
In addition to all the tangible perks of membership, our members also share a sense of community and pride in supporting independent film at Pierce County's only nonprofit arthouse cinema. We reached out to a couple of our members to ask why they choose to support The Grand:
Wade, one of our early supporters, former board members, and now full time Assistant Executive Director said: "I have loved The Grand since practically the day it opened. I was a huge film buff and used to have to trek to Seattle or Olympia to see arthouse films on the big screen before The Grand came along. To me The Grand is more than a movie theater - it is Tacoma's temple to film. It attracts thoughtful and engaged audiences who want more from film than just entertainment - they want to be moved, delighted, consoled, and inspired. I am dedicated to helping keep The Grand healthy and broaden what it can do in the community."
Keyrn, a local real-estate broker and Tacoma enthusiast, told us: "Besides the obvious perks associated with being a member, like free popcorn, discounted upgrades & ticket prices, I choose to be a member because The Grand Cinema adds so much value to Tacoma. Not just in the quality films that they choose to play, but also with the community events and discussions they host. The Grand Cinema is a great place to see movies and connect with folks in our community."
Troy, member and current Board of Directors secretary says he appreciates benefits like "discounted tickets, free popcorn, and first chance at special events to name a few. But what really makes me feel good about supporting the Grand Cinema through my membership is the outstanding programs like the Tacoma Film Festival, exposure to filmmakers, and the youth film camp. I can't think of a better way to support my interests and my community at the same time!"
how to Become Part of our Circle of Supporters
It takes a village to raise a child and a community to support arthouse cinema. As a nonprofit, our members help sustain the operating budget and mission of The Grand to enrich lives and enhance the cultural vitality of the Greater Tacoma community through the art of film. Please consider partnering with us in this mission when you become a member.
