As a non-profit, The Grand Theatre relies heavily on generous donations to operate. When movie theaters across America were forced to closed at the beginning of the pandemic, many of them took a massive financial hit. The Grand Theatre of Stamford was unfortunately among those many. Although we are fully reopened, we are still in the process of recovering from our months-long closure. The Grand Theatre Board of Directors has written a letter detailing our situation. If you feel led to give, please click the DONATE NOW button below or scroll down to read the letter and find out more ways that you can help!

You can also support The Grand Theatre by participating in our Name a Seat program, which, with a donation of $300, will allow you to have a personalized name plate inscribed with your name, the name of a loved one, or the name of an organization or business placed on a seat in our theatre. This honorary naming of a seat is a great way to become a part of the theatre's historical return and financial comeback! During checkout, please state what you would like your personalized name plate to say in the comment box. We will contact you after purchase to confirm. Seats are filling up fast, so don't miss out!

By Donating to The Grand Theatre, you will help...

Pay off the loan from our extensive renovations

We are still in the process of paying off the loan from our extensive renovation. Our current loan payment is $1,850 per month. Due to Covid, we are having a more difficult time making the loan payment than we would in a normal year. By donating, your gift would assist in paying off our beloved town icon!

Assist in operational expenses

We'll be honest with you, operating a movie theatre comes with a large expense. In a normal year, we are able to do this easily. However, the past year has been anything but normal. By donating to The Grand Theatre, your gift would help supplement our monthly income and will allow us to pay for all the expenses that come with running a state-of-the-art, yet historic movie theatre.


At The Grand Theatre, our mission is to provide affordable entertainment to our community and the big country. We have remained committed to keeping our prices low. Although our finances have suffered throughout the pandemic, we have made the decision to freeze our prices and keep them at the same amount they were before the pandemic started. Help us keep our prices low by donating today!

Future generations make lasting memories

For over 80 years, generations of young people have grown up in The Grand Theatre. Here, teenagers have gone on first dates, individuals have met their future spouses and grandparents have entertained their grandchildren. Movies from The Grand Theatre have ignited children's' imagination and have inspired them to dream. By donating, your gift will ensure that future generations get to grow up in our historic theatre and will allow them to make memories that will last a lifetime!
