Our slogan "More Than a Movie" extends beyond our theaters as we work towards the betterment of the communities we reside in. Cinema Cafe is committed to supporting our communities by partnering with local and national charities that impact our loyal fans and guests. Some of our partnerships were brought to us by members of those communities, and others are partnerships we've made fostered through the industries we're a part of. Regardless of where it came from, if you see a cause here, then it is one we stand behind and hope you will too.
