The Art Theater Wins Regional And State Grants

We are excited to announce that the Art Theater is ending an amazing year with even more good news: we were recently awarded two prestigious grants by the Community Foundation of East Central Illinois (CFECI) and the Illinois Arts Council Agency. CFECI’s Community Commitment grant will be dedicated to the acquisition of an auditorium stage and lighting equipment, which we hope will improve your experience viewing and participating in panel discussions. The Illinois Arts Council Agency Programming Grant was awarded in acknowledgement of the Art Theater’s excellence in programming and broad community support. We thank both the CFECI and Illinois Arts Council Agency for their generous support and recognition of the Art Theater!

With thousands of tickets sold throughout 2017, you showed us how much the Art Theater matters. Since our operating expenses go above and beyond the revenue generated from ticket sales and concessions alone, we rely on your contributions to bring you the unique, independent, and thoughtful films and programs that Art Theater is known for. Support the Art Theater today by making a one-time donation or by becoming a member.

The Art Theater has had a fantastic year, and it’s thanks to your generous support! As we look toward 2018 we hope we can continue to count on your support and membership. And don’t forget that memberships make perfect gifts for the movie buff in your life! We thank you again for being part of the Art Theater, and look forward to bringing you innovative, culturally enriching programming in the years to come.
