Become a Member

Support the Downing Film Center by becoming a member or purchasing a gift membership.

MEMBERSHIP FORM

When you buy a ticket for a movie at the Downing, 35–50% of the purchase price goes to the movie’s distributor. In contrast, when you buy a membership, 100% of your membership fee goes to the Downing!

Memberships enable us to bring you the small-box-office independent films that you love, films that rarely come to the local multiplexes. Your memberships also allow us to charge reasonable prices for concessions, which is where the multiplexes boost profits by charging huge markups.

Memberships are good both at the Downing Film Center and at Monroe Theater in Monroe, New York.
