A Message from Ciné

Dear Ciné Members and Patrons,

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and out of deep concern for our wonderful Athens community, Ciné Staff and the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to temporarily close for two weeks and cancel or reschedule upcoming screenings and events. We will honor or refund tickets purchased for future events depending on your preference. The closing is effective today, Monday, March 16. This is a precautionary and voluntary measure that we will re-examine in two weeks.

Public health is very important to us. By closing our doors temporarily, we can help our community with important social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and beyond.

During this temporary two-week closure we have a contingency plan that includes compensation for employees for a few weeks.

Ciné is a nonprofit, creative space where film, art and community thrive. With your help, Ciné has made great strides toward independence in the past 2 years and we are extremely grateful for your support. We look forward to welcoming you to the movies again, hopefully soon.

With much love and best wishes for all,
