A History of Partnership

A History of Partnership

Since opening on February 21, 2014, The Frida Cinema has dedicated itself to partnering with, and supporting the efforts of, our community’s fellow non-profit, educational, and cultural institutions, as well as our community of artists, educators, and community leaders. Here are just some of the wonderful mission-driven organizations we’ve worked with.
