As a grassroots nonprofit, the Theater exists through the efforts and contributions of hundreds of donors. You, too, can play a major role in the life of this regional asset, creating cultural opportunities now and for future generations, enabling those who live beyond the city—including those in need—to access arts options.

The Tull Family Theater has a straightforward vision: to extend Pittsburgh’s cultural vibrancy to communities beyond the city—and to bring quality films of all kinds to you. Since opening in February 2017, the Theater has:

  • Screened more than 230 different films; a mix of new releases, independent and foreign films, documentaries, classics, educational and cultural offerings;
  • Attracted over 96,300 people for screenings and events, with patrons from Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Washington counties, West Virginia, Ohio and beyond;
  • Welcomed 1,287 children from nearby underserved communities to watch major releases at no cost to them, providing transportation along with free admission and concessions;
  • Pioneered sensory friendly screenings in this region for those with autism and special needs, offering new, much-appreciated cultural options

These are just a few of the ways the Theater has made a difference in individual lives and impacted the region. As a young nonprofit, this cultural asset will continue to advance its goals; build its audience base, increase its earned revenues, and advance its corporate and foundation support.

While we work to meet these goals, we invite you to join The Tull Family Theater’s Sustaining Circle: a group of 100 members pledging at one of three levels ($2,500, $5,000 or $10,000) for three consecutive years (2019, 2020 and 2021), positioning the Theater for lasting success and far-reaching impact.

With the Sustaining Circle’s membership goal now over the halfway mark, we hope that you will join us for move the final phase of this initiative over the finish line, ensuring that the Theater continues to serve the region for years to come.
