Event Times

4.3 Tue 10:00 a.m.

The Friends of The Ross Spring Membership Drive (April 3-May 19, 2018) is a great time to join or renew your membership. In addition to all the benefits of being a Friend, you will have a chance to win free movies for a year! You can join or renew online or at the Ross Box Office. 


Your Friends membership donation supports our ability to host award-winning filmmakers, to screen stage productions from the National Theatre and the Metropolitan Opera, and to present Movie Talks with knowledgeable guest speakers. Ticket sales cover just a portion of the operating costs. It’s only through support from patrons just like you that we are able to continue bringing high quality programming and special events to Lincoln. 

Friends members receive discounted admission, complimentary film passes, a loyalty card for free popcorn and tickets, and special invitations to members-only parties and events.

When you JOIN (OR RENEW) DURING THE SPRING MEMBERSHIP DRIVE you’re eligible to WIN PASSES GOOD FOR UNLIMITED ADMISSION FOR A YEAR (for two people)! To join The Friends or to renew your membership, pick up a membership form in the Ross lobby or visit our membership page and submit your membership online. 


Refer a new member during the membership drive and you will get two complimentary passes (per referral) and a chance to win free movies for a year. The more members you refer the more chances you have to win.

Renewing during the drive will grant you a year of membership past your current expiration date, so you can renew your membership even if it isn't due to expire. 


As a special incentive during the Spring Membership Drive, The Friends are offering a discounted membership rate to UNL FACULTY/STAFF:
- $30 Individual Membership (40% savings)
- $50 Family Membership (33% Savings)
To take advantage of this discount, please download the Faculty/Staff membership form or fill one out in the Ross lobby (this discount is not available online) and mail/return to the Ross offices.


Friends members and their guests are invited to a FREE members-only party and film screening as part of The Friends annual meeting on Saturday, May 19 at 5:00 p.m. Visit with fellow Friends members and enjoy free hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar, then stay for the screening of your choice (THE RIDER or RBG). All members in attendance will have a chance to win FREE MOVIES FOR A YEAR even if you didn’t renew or join during the drive.
