About Metro Cinema
- Belief Statement
- Metro Cinema Society believes that film and video are significant art forms and means of communication. We believe that many innovative films and videos are overlooked by conventional theatres including independent, international, and Canadian productions.
- Who We Are
- Metro Cinema is a community-based non-profit society devoted to the exhibition and promotion of Canadian, international and independent film and video in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
- What We Do
- To this end, Metro exhibits an eclectic blend of film, video, and media arts, that are not screened anywhere else in the city. Metro's focus is on presenting a broad selection of educational, cultural, and innovative works. The Society operates with the ongoing assistance of a large volunteer base. We regularly distribute a program, facilitate discussion, and bring in artists.
- Can I volunteer?
- Metro Cinema relies heavily on volunteer assistance to conduct box office and concession duties as well as promotion and fundraising activites. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer application. Benefits of volunteering include snacks, passes to our films and the occasional volunteer party.
