Until the crack of midnight on December 31, 2020, you can score one of the best downtown deals we have ever seen. When you join the ranks of the proud supporters of Robinson Film Center, you will be gifted with TWELVE amazing thank-you’s for use whenever you choose in 2021. It’s no secret that our wonderful little downtown film theater, Robinson Film Center (RFC), and its eatery Abby Singer’s Bistro, have been seriously hurt by Covid restrictions and concerns.

Many large corporate cinemas have simply closed their doors, and others will likely follow suit. With no deep corporate pockets, no mega marketing budget and no studio support, RFC has done everything possible to keep the doors open and a bit of money in the bank to carry them through to better times. They have slashed operating costs to the bone, made the tough decision to let some employees go; cut salaries of remaining employees and added more job duties to those who remained. They have been renting out their theaters for private movie watching parties that have been surprisingly popular, have been encouraging family take-out meals at the Bistro and early on, hosted weekly online film discussions and talks to keep the theater top of mind. They have also been depending on the continued support of donors and supporters who have memberships ranging from individual ($55/yearly) to Mogul ($5,000) and multiple options in-between.

To encourage a broader membership base, RFC is offering a special holiday deal that is quite honestly- one of the best deals we have ever seen. If you purchase a membership for yourself or another/others now through December 31, 2020, EACH new member, no matter the membership level, will receive:

  1. Free appetizer at Abby Singer’s Bistro

  2. Free dessert at Abby Singer’s

  3. Free popcorn combo at Concessions

  4. Free candy at Concessions

  5. Buy one, get one free Chicken & Waffles

  6. Free Holy Angels cookie at Concessions

  7. Buy one, get one free Royale with Cheese

  8. Buy one, get one free sandwich of your choice

  9. Add a soup or salad to an entrée order at Abby Singer’s

  10. Happy Hour pricing pass (so you can enjoy Happy Hour no matter the time)

  11. Book a Private Movie Party, and we’ll include homemade cookies for your guests (in addition to their soda and popcorn!)

  12. 10% off a private special event booking (excludes Private Movie Parties)

One of the theaters pre-Covid.

That’s a value of more than $170 on top of your regular member discounts like $2 off every movie ticket, unlimited concessions upgrades, at least 2 free movie passes, a 10% off coupon for the bistro, and screen credits showing that you are a member. For the higher dollar memberships, members also get things like Golden Tickets, which give the member two free tickets to any movie he/she attends for the entire year.

If you love RFC, are a movie buff, enjoy Abby Singer’s Bistro, or just like the fact that you are supporting a place that is a wonderful, unique and an important part of the fabric of downtown, a membership (or several) is a must-purchase.

You can join simply by clicking Become a Member Now or call Angie Cason at RFC at 318.459.4121, but do it BEFORE the end of 2020 or you will lose out on this great deal!
