You Make The Show Go On — 365 Days A Year !

As a nonprofit, independent cinema, The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center relies on the generosity of patrons and donors; ticket sales alone do not cover operational costs. Only with your support can the Theater bring a broad spectrum of programming to the region, extending the vibrancy of Pittsburgh’s metro core to suburban and rural areas every day of the year! These additional resources enable the Theater to offer programming specifically tailored to youth of different ages and abilities, and to our steadfast core audience of senior citizens.

The Lindsay’s commitment to inclusivity and accessibility shapes its programming to encompass low- and moderate-wealth neighbors, especially youth facing economic and transportation challenges, and seniors who crave mentally and socially stimulating experiences. Sensory friendly screenings, music events and worksite job training embrace individuals and families impacted by autism and special needs. The state’s trailblazing Open Caption Wednesdays provide a reliable source of cinematic enjoyment for those who are hard of hearing, deaf or non-native speakers.

In addition, The Lindsay enriches the region’s cultural vibrancy through the Emerging Filmmakers Showcase, hosting free premieres of works created by the region’s filmmakers, students and international creatives, including Oscar, Gold Derby and International Documentary producers and cinematographers.

Besides these Red Carpet events, The Lindsay collaborates with other cinematic organizations to encourage audience engagement and appreciation of the creative process through Film Pittsburgh’s Teen Screen, JFilms and highly regarded Three Rivers Film Festival; and the international 48 Hour Film Project competition for general films and science fiction/horror genres. Other festivals have featured SCREENSHOT: Asia, the Carnegie Screenwriters Script & Screen Festival and MoonDocs.
