Support The Little


What is a city without artistic culture? A husk. A stopping place on the way to somewhere else.

We are proud to help ensure that Rochester will never become such a place. For over 86 years, the Little has been part of the lifeblood of Rochester. We can't separate ourselves from this city, and we would never want to. We need each other. We need our patrons to exist, and our patrons need us to provide the rich cultural experience of independent cinema.

Rising directors and actors. Award-winning foreign films. Live music and art. We are a cultural hub in a city with an enormous amount of culture to go around.

But we need your help to continue. Please consider supporting the Little in one of the following ways:


Year End Donations

When you make a donation to the Little's General Fund, you support the work The Little does every day.  Our film series, such as the One Take documentary series, the Science on Screen series and the brand new Mondo Monday series will benefit from your gift. You donation will also benefit our Little Cafe music and art series. When you make an additional gift to the Little as part of your year end donations for 2016, above and beyond your membership, you are ensuring we can continue this important work. Thank you!


The Little itself is also a community. Join our inner circle - those who get the most information, best deals and richest sense of ownership in our venture. 


We wouldn't be able to have such a presence in Rochester without the scores of helping hands who give their time and energy out of love and dedication for what we're about. If you believe in our mission, please consider taking an active role. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the information on our main WXXI volunteer form here.  We can then contact you when opportunities arise at the Little and we need your help.
