Let's Support Ciné!

Ciné Independence Campaign

Ciné is a truly independent art house theater and event space because your generous support helped us purchase our building in 2018. Now we’ve launched an Independence Campaign to help fund our mortgage and building upkeep. Donate today and Keep Ciné Indie!

Donate through Sponsorship Opportunities

Take your Seat - Theatre Seat Sponsorship

Support Ciné by naming a seat for someone you love! Act now, Theater 1 is sold out. One plaque per seat at $150, good for the life of the seat. Makes a great gift! Available for purchase in person at the cinema only. Purchasing a plaque does not reserve a seat assignment. Thanks for your support!

Corporate Sponsorships

For Corporate Sponsorship options and other naming opportunities, please contact: Pamela Kohn, Executive Director by email: director@athenscine.com or call (706) 546-5454.
