Donate Take A Seat. Give Film A Future. As of July 2018, Milwaukee Film has officially taken over the lease of the historic Oriental Theatre. This is a big deal in so many ways but, most importantly, it allows us greater flexibility when it comes to bringing you the most amazing film and cultural experiences to our fair city - 365 days a year. Of course, as the saying goes, nothing in life is free. Our historic theatre is in need of much-needed upgrades and repairs. I mean, have you ever sat on one of those balcony seats?! That's why we're asking for your help. In order to support our ongoing restoration efforts, we'd like to invite you Take A Seat. Our "Take A Seat" campaign allows people to a sponsor a single seat, or many seats, in the Oriental Theatre in honor of a family member, friend, or loved one. What's even better: Bud and Sue Selig have offered a $1.5 Million challenge that doubles every donation we receive - but only if we meet our $1.5 Million goal. So, film lovers, what are you waiting for? CLICK HERE to Take A Seat and help give film a future in Milwaukee. Questions? Read our FAQ here. Without the financial support of our members, fans, and the larger film community, Milwaukee Film simply couldn't exist! Your one-time donation has a direct impact on all facets of our nonprofit organization, ranging from our annual Milwaukee Film Festival, to our year-round education and Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance programs. If you're interested in supporting Milwaukee Film at a higher level or on an ongoing basis, please contact Jessica Bursi today at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-755-1965 ex. 212.
