We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, formed in 2007 to preserve the site of the Denis Theatre on Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon and reimagine it for generations to come through meaningful film and arts programming to entertain, educate, and enrich.

Our Mission

To enrich and educate the community through distinctive and engaging film and arts programming.

What We've Achieved

Since forming in 2007, the Foundation has raised $2.8 million of the $5.2 million needed to renovate the theater building as a vibrant cultural hub in the South Hills. While the primary focus of the Foundation is raising the funds needed to renovate the existing building, we’re also delivering film programming in the community. Our successful programs, Meet Me at the Movies and Reel to Real, have earned critical support and have kept The Denis name alive.
