Inspirational Cinema Fundraising Events

Inspirational Cinema is an innovative way to raise funds for your organisation and to inspire the audience. It is designed to empower your members and give them a shared positive experience while socialising.

We can custom make your event to suit your fundraising needs.
The Events are held in the Adelaide CBD at the Mercury Cinema in Adelaide’s Lions Art Centre.

Inspirational Cinema will match and source the movie of your choice and obtain the screening rights. We will also organise a rating approval so they can be shown here in Adelaide if they have not yet been rated for viewing within Australia.

The event duration is up to three hours. This gives the members, friends and guests of your organisation the opportunity to socialize and discuss the film after the screening, deepening their experience in a relaxed inspired environment. Your Organisation is also able to set up a trade table as well as serve your own refreshments within this time, enabling you to raise even more funds on the evening.

The Cinema can accommodate up to 186 people, thus making your event profitable and an extremely achievable target for ticket sales.

Inspirational Cinema will organise all of the following aspects of your fundraising event;

  1. Research, match and source the movie.
  2. Obtain approval to screen all copyrighted movies.
  3. Obtain rating approval and exemptions to screen the movie if not yet rated in Australia.
  4. Liaise and book venue.
  5. Organise all projection and audio requirements
  6. Supply tickets for your distribution.
  7. Provide information and tips for promoting and selling your tickets (downloadable all in one document).
  8. Provide access to trailers of the movie for viewing (if available) via the internet.
  9. Provide access to marketing material that distributors or the production company have made available
  10. Liaise with the venue, so that you are able to set up a trade table as well as sell your own refreshments, enabling you to raise even more funds at the event. (Organisation/Individual to supply own tables, equipment and refreshments). A surcharge of $100 is charged by the Mercury if alcohol is going to be served)
  11. A staff member from Inspirational Cinema will be available to collect the tickets. Your organisation can use this opportunity for a door prize raffle.

** Follow your passions, and success will follow you ** Nothing in life is stacked against you in your life except your own thinking ** When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth ** Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at ** Every youth owes himself and to the world to make the most possible out of the stuff that is in him ** A man in the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, nothing else ** You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is enough! You must take action ** All achievement is the triumph of persistence **
