FRIENDS OF THE ROSS SPRING MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
MOVIES ARE BETTER ON THE BIG SCREEN
There’s nothing quite like the immersive experience of seeing a great movie in a theater and you can help The Ross continue making these magic moments possible by joining Friends of The Ross or renewing/upgrading your membership during the Spring Membership Drive. In addition to perks like discounted admission and complimentary passes, you will also have a chance to win FREE MOVIES FOR A YEAR!
PLUS, if you refer a friend who becomes a member, you will receive two complimentary passes and another chance to win free movies for a year.
The 2022 Friends of The Ross Spring Membership Drive (April 8 – May 21) 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!
NOT A MEMBER YET?
When you join Friends of The Ross, you will receive two or more complimentary passes (depending on your membership level), a year of discounted admission to Ross films and events, discounted popcorn at the concessions stand, a punch card which earns you free popcorn and movies, and invitations to special Friends events. Friends memberships are tax deductible and a great value for cinema fans; an individual membership pays for itself after just 9 evening screenings.
WHY JOIN THE FRIENDS?
Although The Ross is part of the University of Nebraska, programming is only possible with private community support; ticket and concession sales cover just a portion of operating costs. The Friends organization allows The Ross to continue bringing award-winning independent, documentary, and international films to Lincoln. Friends also support great Ross events including The Met: Live in HD, National Theatre Live, Movie Talks with knowledgeable guest speakers, The Norman A. Geske Cinema Showcase, and other special screenings.
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.
ALREADY A MEMBER OF THE FRIENDS OF THE ROSS?
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.
