Since 2010, you have supported a/perture cinema with your ticket purchases. Now as a non-profit organization you can support us philanthropically and ensure that a/perture continues to be a valued resource for the community when it comes to film and the theatrical experience.  There are several charitable giving opportunities for individuals, organizations, and corporations to help a/perture build a more sustainable future:

Each and every one of our donors will be instrumental in building a sustainable future for a/perture cinema and allowing us to continue to provide a home for thought-provoking and inspiring films – a place for the community to gather and engage in this unique and diverse art form. We are excited about our future and the opportunity to use film and the theatrical space to promote diversity and build social capital. Your donation will help us in our efforts. Thank you for your support!




Ticket discounts, free popcorn on Mondays, merchandise discounts and other perks… a/v membership is a great deal. In addition to these perks, a/v members benefit most from the knowledge that their annual membership supports a/perture as it endeavors to bring dynamic films and engaging dialogue to Winston-Salem and the Piedmont Triad.


Leave your footprint on the city of arts and innovation through film!

As an organization committed to showcasing the most artistically and socially compelling films and special series and events in Winston-Salem, a/perture cinema depends on corporate citizens who recognize the impact of arts and culture on a city’s progress. a/perture’s corporate partners will be pivotal to our success, and will help us continue to promote exceptional cinema to local audiences. Please contact info@aperturecinema.com for more information.
