The 2021 Friends of The Ross Fall Membership Drive (September 10-November 11) is a great time to join, renew, or upgrade your membership. In addition to all the benefits of being a Friend, you will have a chance to win free movies for a year! PLUS, new and upgrading members get a free Friends tote bag. 

You can Join or renew online 
or pick up a membership form in the Ross lobby.


Friends membership donations support 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 punch card for free popcorn and tickets, and special invitations to members-only parties and events. Plus, join during the fall drive and you will receive a FREE TOTE BAG (while supplies last)!

When you JOIN (OR RENEW) DURING THE FALL 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. And if you chose to upgrade your membership to a higher level, you will receive a FREE TOTE BAG!

- $50 Family Membership (33% Savings)
