PROGRAM

ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs is one of the country’s oldest cinematic treasures. Showcasing the best in contemporary and classic cinema for more than 80 years, the theatre’s challenges are the greatest they have ever been. Now that the Little Art is a 501(c)(3) non-profit cinema, there has never been a better time to show your support.

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Small-town movie theaters are fast becoming just a memory. It is the support of the Yellow Springs community and the wider region that have enabled the Little Art Theatre to continue to keep its doors open. HOW YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

  • Create an annual baseline of financial support
  • Continue to provide quality film programming
  • Contribute to equipment and infrastructure improvements

  HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM Jenny Cowperthwaite started working at the Little Art Theatre when she was just 15, and purchased the business in 1998. In 2001, facing an industry-wide decline in movie attendance, Jenny began Friends of the Little Art, an annual membership campaign. In 2009 she made another big decision — to transition the Little Art to a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity. In her role as Executive Director, Jenny continues to pilot the theatre as she has for more than 30 years. By giving a tax-deductible donation, you can be part of the next chapter of the Little Art’s long and unique history as one of the nation’s oldest cinematic treasures. Now that the theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, there has never been a better time to show your support.
