INTRODUCTION

We are pleased to introduce our “VENTURE CINEMA MOVIE TIME” fundraiser program to public school, churches and other non-profit organizations located in Gwinnett and other surrounding counties.

Our generous program will donate to qualified organizations, a percentage of the concessions sales generated by the organization’s supporters during the day of the fundraiser event.

OUR PRICES ARE VERY AFFORDABLE

Movie tickets are only $3.50 for regular 2D movies and $5 for 3D movies, also our concessions prices are the lowest compared to other theaters in the area!

LIVING THE DIGITAL EXPERIENCE!

We’ve converted our theater from the old 35mm format into DIGITAL. Now, you can enjoy superb High Definition Video and Crystal Clear Audio. We also totally remodeled the auditoriums including new seats, the main hall, the lobby, the concessions stand, the new main entrance and the box office.

We offer our regular showtimes that usually include: G, PG, PG13 and rated R movies. This way you can take advantage and invite all type of audiences to support your fundraiser. Parents can enjoy the movie with their children as a family, or if your organization wants to provide adult supervision for the children while their parents, or teens enjoy a different movie suitable for them, so everybody enjoy the movie of their choice.

MOVIE CHANGES

Some movies might change without prior notification. Usually, new movies are published on our website and social media sites on Wednesday by night. The new showtimes take effect each Friday.

MULTIPLE FUNDRAISERS OPTION

Your organization will have the opportunity of booking up to four fundraisers per year subject to availability.

THE DONATIONS

– The organization will receive from 15-20% of the concession sales (on weekends and holidays will receive 15% and on weekdays 20%) generated by the organization’s supporters.
– Please note that movie ticket sales are not included due to the low margin that they represent.

DONATIONS ARE BASED ON CONCESSIONS SALES ONLY

As we mentioned it above, the donations are based on the concessions sales generated by your supporters during your fundraiser event, and we want to clarify that TICKET SALES ARE NOT INCLUDED. The main reason for this is that a good portion of the ticket sales goes back to the movie studios, and since our ticket prices being so inexpensive is really hard for us to donate over the ticket sales.

DONATION CHECKS

  • Checks will be made to the organization’s legal name as it appears on their 501c3 form.
  • Checks will be send by mail to the organization’s address.
  • Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for check’s processing. Normally checks are made on the 15th and the 30th of each month.
  • You’re required to provide us with a donation’s letter (receipt) made to VENTURE CINEMA 12, LLC. and stating the amount of the donation received.
  • You’ll need to provide us a copy of the 501c3 proof from the IRS.
  • Please send the donation’s letter and the copy of the 501c3 by mail at:
    • Venture Cinema 12 LLC
      Attn: Rafael Barrera
      3750 Venture Dr. Duluth, GA 30096
      Suite E4

FAQ’s

Q: Should we have a representative from our organization during the fundraiser?
A: Even when is not required, we encourage you to have a representative during the entire event, to make sure your supporters present the flyer at the concessions stand. This is critical, because without the flyer we cannot track the concessions purchases made by your group.

Q: Are we going to receive a donation from the total concessions sales during our fundraising event?
A: Unfortunately not from the total sales. For instance, let’s say that you invited 200 people to support your fundraiser, and 150 people showed up at the theater, then 120 people bought concession items, but only 90 people presented the fundraiser flyer, hence, we will only be able to track the concession items bought by the people who presented the flyer, since otherwise we cannot tell who else came to support your event. That’s why is so important to ask your supporters to present the flyer at the concessions stand.

Q: Can we pre-order movie tickets ahead of time?
A: Unfortunately no, the tickets must be purchase at the box office on the fundraiser’s event date.

Q: Can we buy movie tickets online?
A: We don’t sale movie tickets online at this moment. However, we might offer this service in the future.

Q: Is there a way to know what movies will be playing in the future?
A: New movies and showtime changes are usually made once a week. Our goal is to publish these changes every Wednesday by night. The new showtimes take effect each Friday. Beyond that, we can’t tell what movies we will be playing weeks ahead of time.

Q: Can we rent an auditorium for our fundraiser event?
A: Our fundraiser program mentioned in this page, doesn’t include auditorium rentals. If you prefer it, you can rent an entire auditorium for your organization through our auditorium rental program. For additional information you can contact us by email. Click here for our contact information.
