The Countryfest Community Cinema is celebrating its 10 year anniversary with a new membership campaign.

Ron Suchoplas, General Manager at the Countryfest Community Cinema, says those who sign up to be a member will receive in-theatre perks once they can safely open.

“So the individual one is $150 a year and that’ll give them one movie ticket every month for a full year to the theatre. The couple one is $275, that’ll give two movie tickets every month for a whole year, and the family one – if it fits their family for two adults and two children – is good for four tickets every month for a year.”

The cinema is holding a drive-thru-style event to collect membership pledges and donations on Friday, May 14th. You can take part by dropping your pledges off at the parking lot behind the cinema from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Suchoplas says they’re looking to raise between $150,000 to $200,000.

“We’re looking to hit that and that way it’ll give us a bit of a cushion to cover our operating costs while we’re closed and have a little bit of cash at the end to do some minor repairs or upgrades as they come about.”
