The Cinema Foundation

The National Association of Theatre Owners Cinema Foundation is an all-industry 501(c)3 non-profit that uses data and collaboration to strengthen the cinema industry & engage audiences.

The movie theater industry includes more than movie theaters. It is made up of key partners including filmmakers, studios, content providers, equipment and concession manufacturers, data and technology companies, and more who depend on the strength of theatrical exhibition and the communities we serve. The Cinema Foundation brings together this entire community to promote moviegoing and use research, data, education, collaboration, and industry promotion to grow the cinema business and audience.
