Why donate to the Nelson Civic Theatre Society?

Because your contribution matters and will help us reach our goals in our most pressing priority areas. Plus you get a charitable receipt to boot.

Current Priorities

Our venue has been a key community gathering place for more than 80 years. We have a vision to build on this history of local use by thoughtfully improving our historic auditorium to meet the needs of the present and the future. We have just finished a 3-year business plan and are in the early days of our capital campaign planning to add two more spaces within our current footprint – a move that will secure our solvency for the longterm.

Until then, As a single-screen venue, we need your help. Box office income ebbs and flows, depending on elements like film reviews, good weather, bad weather, and other events in our community. Until more theatres are added, donor support has become essential to keeping our theatre running and bringing you an exciting and eclectic mix of independent film and new releases, and continuing to build and grow community programs and services.

Please consider making a charitable gift to Nelson Civic Theatre Society today. Your gift will help to ensure that we can continue to serve you 7 days a week, keep our ticket and concession prices low, and build towards our vision for a thriving cultural media arts centre in Nelson.

All donors making gifts of more than $10 will receive a charitable receipt.
