BRINGING PASSION AND CREATIVITY TOGETHER
CAMEO CINEMA FOUNDATION
Napa Valley is a special place. Not only is it one of the most beautiful spots on earth, it’s a place with heart. Throughout Napa Valley there is a strong feeling of community. It’s a place where people care about the environment, about lifestyle, and – most of all – about one another. The Cameo Cinema is an important part of Napa Valley. For over 100 years she has provided so much more than a relaxing place to enjoy great movies. The Cameo is truly a community hub where myriad entertainment and educational programs bring friends and neighbors together to laugh, cry, dream, and learn.
The Cameo is a valuable resource that is more than just a local business - it's a community treasure that educates, inspires, and entertains. The loss of community theaters is all too common. Why? Because ticket sales never cover operating expenses, even when business is good. In 2018 the FOC must provide at least 30% of the theatre's revenue. Friends of the Cameo is dedicated to preserving the unique and magical experience that is the Cameo Cinema. Won't you join us?
Old theatres are irreplaceable ... more importantly, their spirit could not be duplicated because they remind us of a day when going to the show was a more glorious and escapist experience.
I think a town’s old theatres are the sanctuary of its dreams.
