VIDIOTS NAME-A-SEAT-AT-THE-EAGLE CAMPAIGN

SUPPORT OUR 2022 OPENING + GRACE A SEAT AT THE EAGLE THEATRE WITH YOUR NAME, OR DEDICATE TO A MOVIE-LOVING FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER!

 

Your support of our Come Sit With Us! Campaign will directly contribute to critical renovations on our new home, the beautiful and historic Eagle Theatre, and get us a whole lot closer to opening in Spring 2022.

When Northeast L.A.’s beloved Eagle went dark more than 20 years ago, her future was uncertain. Lucky for us, the churchgoers who took over the building liked comfy and clean movie theater chairs (with super cool armrests), so now lucky us, and lucky YOU, we get to fill them up with movie-lovers!

NAME IT! PERSONALIZE A-SO-VERY-VIDIOTS PLAQUE WITH A NAME OR A SPECIAL MESSAGE, FOR THE LIFETIME OF THE CHAIR!

Check out the Eagle’s seat map, and pick from two sections/levels of support:

Neon Pink : $2,000/seat

Vidiots Blue: $1,000/seat

Like other donations to Vidiots, yours is tax deductible as allowed by law, save your receipt for tax season! Pick yours HERE.

ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS!

  • Does my name on a seat mean I get to sit in my seat at every show I come to? While we can’t wait to see you in your seat, for lots of logistical reasons, we can’t guarantee that the seat(s) you’ve named will be available for screenings or events. But rest assured, anyone who sits in your seat will know how devoted you are to Vidiots, cinema, and the thrilling theatrical experience (and maybe they’ll thank you)!

  • I want to buy multiple seats – can I have them next to each other? Yes! We will work to place your seats together, and we do not anticipate any issues with that as we have a very large house. If for some reason, we cannot accommodate it, we will reach out to you to come up with a great solution!

  • How long will my name be on my seat? Your plaque and seat are guaranteed for the lifetime of the seat, which isn’t always predictable, but we estimate ten years! We’ll always offer you first dibs when and if the time comes for new seats!

  • Can I name the seat for someone else? Of course! We’d love to have you use your naming right to honor a friend, a family member, or even a movie-loving four-legged friend (they really do exist).

  • Can I go in on the seat with a friend or a group? Absolutely! We’d love for you to gather friends to cover the cost of seat-naming donation! If you have too many names to list on the plaque, come up with a fun or meaningful-to-you team name!

  • Do you have ADA seats for naming rights? Indeed! Check out the seat map above!

  • How many seats are you naming? We’ve got 200 seats (in our 250-seat house) anxiously waiting to be claimed by their movie-loving Vidiot! We hope to name as many seats, as quickly as we can, as all donations from this campaign are pivotal to supporting major renovations on the Eagle, and our opening in Spring 2022. We would love for you to help spread the word about the campaign, please share with friends and family, and when you name your seat, sing it from the social-media mountaintops!

  • How can I pay to name my seat?: We’ll ask you for your credit card info when you click the PICK YOUR SECTION + NAME YOUR SEAT button above, but if you’d like to pay by check, you can make it payable to Vidiots Foundation and mail to us at: Vidiots Foundation c/o Maggie Mackay, 3867 Aguilar Street, Los Angeles, CA 90065.

  • I’m a Vidiots Founding Member, do I get to name a seat? First off, THANK YOU for being such an important part of our family! If you are Founding Member at the $25,000 level or above, seat naming rights are part of your benefits! Barbara on our team has reached out to you about this, but if your inbox looks anything like ours, avoid the searching and click the EMAIL US button below!

  • I’m not a Vidiots Founding Member, but now I’m curious . . . YAY! Founding Members are the bedrock of Vidiots and our relaunch at the Eagle! Levels start at $5,000 for a variety of benefits, and can come from individuals, groups, or companies.
