​​​​​For three years, The Luminal Theater has brought fresh, classic, mind-bending, and thought-provoking films to Bedford-Stuyvesant and Central Brooklyn under our mission of making independent Black cinema readily available to these communities.


Our programming however is not cheap to execute.


While we are still seeking  a permanent space to continue our mission, we need your help to continue to bring fresh film activities to entertain and empower our community.  We know you believe in offering alternative activities to your family, friends and neighbors, so  ​​

Support the Luminal Theater 2017 Fundraiser TODAY!​​ 


Your contribution will help bring to Bed-Stuy & Central Brooklyn:

  • stellar Black independent films from local, national, and international filmmakers
  • film centered activities for youth and elders 
  • a fresh way to connect the Bed-Stuy film arts community to their neighbors
  • keep Black art alive in a rapidly changing Brooklyn


You can click HERE  to make a tax-free one-time donation of whatever amount you are open to giving, or you can become a patron and contribute monthly/yearly​ -

the New York Foundation for the Arts.
