For the last several years we have engaged high school students in a unique collaboration known as the Nightlight Cinema Explorers. Cinema Explorers have collectively logged many volunteer hours assisting with events, creating artwork, developing group and individual creative projects, raising funds for the Nightlight, and contributing to community through their interactions with audiences and our community of patrons. Now, our inaugural group of Cinema Explorers are set to graduate high school this spring. So it's time for a celebration!
Please join us Saturday March 7th at 11:30am at the Nightlight Cinema for a brief presentation followed by a celebratory brunch. We encourage patrons to reserve their place for the event by RSVP and to indicate dietary preference if you wish. We will accept suggested donations of 5-25 dollars a person at the door on through our website to help us cover the cost of our buffet brunch and staffing for the event. Every dollar you choose to donate to the Cinema Explorers goes back into the community building contributions that they engage in throughout the year.
If you've visited the Nightlight theater lobby you've seen the beautiful backdrop that was designed and painted by several of our Cinema Explorers. If you've ever enjoyed one of our delicious vegan brownies, those too along with other vegan concessions were the product of a Cinema Explorer initiative. If you've seen our behind-the-scenes photos and videos, chances are they were created by volunteer Cinema Explorers.
We are so grateful for their contributions. We look forward to recognizing them at this event. All are welcome to join in the celebration!
The Nightlight Cinema Explorers are student members of the Nightlight Cinema who are interested in creating work that engages the theater's goal of advancing cinema and community in tandem.
Do you know a Cinema Explorer?
Cinema Explorer memberships are open to current students in grades 8 through 12. Joining is easy! Students can register online and then follow up with Nightlight Artistic Director, Brittany Dobish or a Board Member to discuss their own unique interests. Cinema Explorer memberships last for one year, renewing each September 1st to roughly coincide with the academic calendar. Cinema Explorers can download and print out their membership cards from the Nightlight Member website and present their membership cards at the box office for tickets at the price of $6 per film. Cinema Explorers also receive their own monthly newsletter and get advance notice of special events.
