A message from
Executive Director, Brett Bossard

A huge thanks to everyone who came back to the movies the weekend on June 25. It was a joyous and cathartic way to begin the celebration of THIRTY FIVE YEARS of Cinemapolis in downtown Ithaca. The longest hiatus in the cinema’s history is officially over, and we’re able to resume operations thanks in large part to a very generous landlord (thank you Cayuga Green!), the REMARKABLE Federal relief from the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (thank you Senator Schumer!), and the continued support of devoted Cinemapolitans like you.

We’re not back to normal yet, but the road toward recovery looks very good.  Thanks to you all for being there through the lean times and for all you’ll do to help us get going again this Summer. A contribution today helps prepare us for the next unexpected hurdles on the horizon.


Living Wage EmployerCinemapolis values its role as one of Ithaca’s certified living wage employers. During our temporary closure, all Cinemapolis employees, including hourly staff whose schedules were impacted, continued to receive full pay.
