Today, we’re kicking off Member Month!

Why? Because we appreciate YOU!

Varsity Members are so important and vital to everything we do. Together, we’re a part of growing a vibrant film arts culture in Des Moines.

Not a member yet?
Time to renew your annual dues?

October is the very best time! All memberships made in October will receive a Varsity Member t-shirt or magnet AND get entered into a drawing for a private movie screening! Plus, we’ve got a lot of great things in store like $1 Member Mondays and our Oct. 11 member event with drinks, snack and trivia.

Join/Renew for the perks! Your Varsity Membership gets you discounts on tickets, concessions, our calendar mailer and invites to special events.

Join/Renew for the pride and satisfaction of supporting Des Moines’s only non-profit art house cinema. Your support helps us:

– program films because of artistic quality, to highlight diverse voices,
– to create partnerships with local nonprofits, and curate series like Varsity Pride,
– bring filmmakers and artists to connect directly with you,
– use film to educate with Science on Screen and soon Passport to Culture,
– support local filmmakers with our fiscal sponsorship program and more.

It’s through the added support of members that we can make Varsity Cinema so much more than a movie theater. Your membership makes a difference!

Join or renew in October – get Varsity swag! Click here to become a member or renew online today or stop in to the theater in October, you’ll even get one of our brand new t-shirts (Sustaining Level & Above) or a magnet (Individual & Family Members) to show off that you’re a Varsity Cinema member. You’ll also be entered in a drawing for a FREE private screening in our Main Auditorium.

Join us for a Member Appreciation event. To say thank you, members are invited to a Member Appreciation Event on Wed, Oct. 11 from 6-9pm, and can take advantage of $1 tickets on Member Mondays all through October. Read more below!

I can’t say it enough – thank you for getting us here. Thank you for considering becoming a member or renewing your membership!
