Free Membership

Through July 1, 2021

These are challenging times for the movie theater industry—especially for independent cinema owners and their employees. As an Alliance formed by independents for independents, ICA’s Board of Directors understands the extraordinary and unprecedented challenges facing our industry. As we work together to navigate this health crisis, free membership in the ICA will give you access to the tools and resources to help your company through these unprecedented challenges.
