The Frida Cinema

Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival

We’re Over $2,000! KEEP US GOING!!

With 128 days to go, we are happy to announce that today we hit the $2K Milestone in our 5 Year Anniversary Campaign!  We’ve still got a long way to go – please keep us going by clicking here!   

As we announced at our 5 Year Anniversary Event, whereas we are so grateful to have achieved this amazing milestone, we need your help to keep going.  We are on a mission to raise $50,000 in Five Months, in the effort to ensure our non-profit organization successfully celebrates another five years of success, and rings in Year Ten with you!  It is by far the largest fundraising campaign we’ve undertaken; it may seem lofty, but it’s an integral campaign as we look to the future, and with your support, we are confident we can celebrate its success with you this summer!

An art house cinema is inherently a risk-taking organization.  It is risky to bring you a quality genre film from a micro-budget distributor or studio with zero marketing dollars, rather than play a sure-fire hit that has posters plastered on buses and cereal boxes – but we exist to bring you that quality genre film. It’s risky to provide some of our films and events free of charge, or offer a double-feature for the price of one ticket, or price an event at far less than what a competing cinema might charge – but we want you to have that experience.  That’s our Mission – it is literally why The Frida Cinema exists.

We are dedicated to continue to serve our community as Orange County’s only non-profit, independent art house cinema as long as you can, but we need your support to continue to grow, take risks, and to keep the ART in Art House for another ten years and beyond!  

Every dollar donated to The Frida ensures more film, more variety, more experiences, and more memories.  Please make a one-time or recurring contribution to our 50K Campaign today!

We thank those generous individuals whose donations have allowed us to cross the $2,000 mark, and 4%, of our goal!
