The 2020 Friends of The Ross Spring Membership Drive (April 20-May 31) is a great time to join, renew, upgrade your membership.
Thank you for supporting the Ross.
Whether you see movies every week or just visit the Ross once in a blue moon, your support is invaluable to the life of our theater. Movies have a unique ability to tell gripping stories, inform us about the human experience, and let us escape into a new world for a few hours. A great way to support The Ross and help us continue to bring these sorts of high-quality film experiences to Lincoln, is by becoming a member of The Friends of The Ross, and the 2020 Spring Membership Drive (April 20-May 31) is a great time to join. If you are already a member of The Friends, the Spring Drive is the perfect opportunity to renew or upgrade your membership. In addition to all of benefits of being a Friend, new and renewing members will have a chance to win Free Movies for a year!
We know this is a very difficult time for everyone and if membership isn’t in the cards right now, you can also support The Ross just by watching movies from home! We have teamed up with a number of film distributors to offer special digital streaming movie rentals that will let you watch new Independent films from the comfort of your living room, with a portion of the ticket price going directly to The Ross. Click here to see a full list of films available for streaming.
NOT A MEMBER YET?
Friends membership donations support our ability to host award-winning filmmakers, to screen stage productions from the National Theater 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)!

ALREADY A MEMBER OF THE FRIENDS OF THE ROSS?
THANK YOU for being a Friend!
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. New members are able to list you as their referring member when joining online or by using the printable membership form.
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.

FRIENDS ANNUAL MEETING
Due to the temporary closure of the theater and the uncertainty of next few months, The Friends Annual Meeting, which usually marks the end of the Spring Drive, has been postponed. It will be rescheduled once the theater re-opens.
Please Note: The Ross staff is currently working remotely from home, so it may take a little longer than usual for new/renewing membership packets to be mailed.
