Take A Seat

Dryden Theatre

Sponsor a seat in the Dryden Theatre and help the George Eastman Museum connect audiences with the art of the moving image, the artists who create films, and the history of the medium—for generations to come.

The Eastman Museum is one of very few archives worldwide that is able to screen motion pictures in the full range of formats—from the earliest silent nitrate film stocks to current digital technologies—allowing audiences to see the filmmaker's creative vision in its authentic form.

Your sponsorship will sustain the Dryden's aesthetic and structural integrity and the museum's ability to provide an unparalleled film-going experience.

Along with the knowledge that they are supporting the preservation of the Dryden Theatre, seat sponsors or recipients will receive special invitations to talks with curators from the Moving Image Department and access to presale tickets for designated special events. Seat sponsorship is a memorable way to mark a birthday, anniversary, or holiday. Gift sponsorship will be acknowledged with a special gift package.
