The AVFilm Board of Directors has approved the leases for the formation of PLAZA CINEMA CENTER, a two-story center for the exhibition, study, and enjoyment of film and media arts, at 371 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg, Calif. The center will represent a physical expression of AVFilm’s mission to educate, empower, and engage students of all ages though the transformative power of film.
Next, the Board and Staff will embark on a Capital Campaign to fund the leasehold improvements and operational growth necessary to run the Center.
Naming opportunities are available. For details, please contact Executive Director Kathryn Hecht at kathryn.hecht[at]avfilmpresents.org or 707.278.9624.
Film and media arts can transform lives by creating joy, opening hearts and minds, and building cultural bridges.
Nowhere in the North Bay is there a film center with space for education, networking for filmmakers, and community gathering around film.
HOW WE WILL SOLVE IT
Plaza Cinema Center will provide Northern Sonoma County with a hybrid movie theater for families and cinephiles alike, showcasing Hollywood and Arthouse films. The Center will provide the broader region with a hub for community classes, filmmaking gear, work stations, and a meeting ground for cinematic education.
Together, we will create a sustainable home for all members of the community to explore, enjoy, and study film and media arts.
