Sarasota Film Society is planning a “Save Our Cinemas” Fundraiser for Burns Court & Lakewood Ranch Cinema on February 27th at our Lakewood Ranch Cinema theater, located at 10715 Rodeo Drive, Bradenton, FL 34202.  We are planning this Fundraiser at Lakewood Ranch Cinemas as it can house many more people so we can safely hold this event under CDC guidelines to ensure we have space to accommodate our loyal members & patrons.  We are planning a fun filled day with Food, Beverages, Alcohol, Entertainment, Movies, Popcorn, Chinese Raffle, Silent Auction & 50/50 Raffle.  Our auction items are from our loyal local businesses who have graciously donated to help our cause.  If you would like to donate items for our Raffle or Silent Auction, please contact Trisha Calandra at trisha@filmsociety.org or 941-364-8662 x2010.

  • Event will be from 12:00pm – 3:00pm followed by movie screenings starting at 4:00pm for anyone who purchased a ticket.
  • Attendance is being capped at 150 people even though our buildings capacity is a little over 1000 people. 
  • Admission will be $20.00 for Members & $25.00 for Non-Members.
  • Our Chinese Raffle Pricing is as follows - $1.00 Per Ticket - $10.00 for 12 Tickets - $20.00 for 25 Tickets. (All Tickets Must Be Purchased In Cash)
  • Our 50/50 Raffle Pricing is as follows - $5.00 for 6 Tickets - $10.00 for 13 Tickets - $15.00 for 25 Tickets. (All Tickets Must Be Purchased In Cash)
