The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center is a film-based arts organization created to strengthen cultural, educational and entertainment experiences in the region northwest of Pittsburgh.

About Us

Open 365 days a year, the nonprofit Theater is brimming with a wide range of films and genres—new releases, classics, documentaries, international and educational films including art, museums, musicals, stage plays and music on screen—and titles not shown elsewhere in the suburban/rural areas it serves. Technically and in its programming, The Lindsay is one of the region’s best cinemas, according to Pittsburgh Magazine.

Daily discounts bring ticket prices to $8.75 for senior citizens, military and college students with ID, children 10 and younger, and groups. General admission price is $11.

The Theater has served more than 150,000 individuals since opening in 2017, drawing visitors every month from Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Washington counties; West Virginia, Ohio and beyond. Thousands more attend the Theater’s free cultural events and performances, ranging from rock, jazz, pop and Americana music to opera, classical and Cuban ballet to Irish step dancing, and musical revues.

Everyone joining us for films and donating to this arts nonprofit support an array of programs for the public, in addition to our daily screenings. Some give because they love the Theater facilities and the films; others give because they believe the power of the arts should be shared with everyone; still others give because they want their donations to have regional impact and be used wisely. All can give with confidence, as this organization has four stars, the highest possible rating from Charity Navigator, which examines nonprofits on the strength of their finances, their governance practices and the transparency of their operations.

Invested in inclusivity and accessibility to the arts, The Lindsay lowers barriers for those with cognitive and physical limitations as well as economic and transportation challenges.

In fulfilling its mission, the Theater:

    • Became the first cinema in the state to offer weekly Open Caption screenings, after pioneering sensory friendly events and innovative programs for youth and young adults with special needs–including serving as a job training worksite.
    • Leveraged the arts as a platform for STEM career awareness through free Cinema Maker Sessions (CiMS), a unique 10-week summer opportunity benefiting nearly 100 youth living in nearby low- and moderate-wealth communities.
    • Created a hub where emerging filmmakers share their works, with the international 48 Hour Film Project alone attracting over 1,000 artists.
    • Presented numerous film festivals and serves as a satellite location northwest of the city for the acclaimed Three Rivers Film Festival, introducing new audiences to the region’s largest cinematic event.
    • Customized programming to serve over 200 schools, other nonprofits and agencies.
    • Enabled hundreds of children from nearby low-wealth communities to attend screenings—many of them, for the first time in their lives—by providing transportation, tickets and a full cinematic experience at no cost.
    • Launched free “sold out” events tailored to senior citizens, incorporating a film screening, live music, a panel discussion and Q&A session with experienced experts.

As a willing, creative partner connecting the region with the power of the arts, The Lindsay will continue to expand how its mission is fulfilled.
