If you live in Winston-Salem, you probably know about a/perture Cinema. It’s located right on 4th Street downtown, and it’s the best movie theater in town, as far as I’m concerned. (It’s far more than just a theater, in fact — it’s a community. Kevin and I are proud a/perture a/v members, and through that membership not only get to support the nonprofit theater, but also are included in exclusive events throughout the year.)
Because a/perture is an independent theater, it features films that often aren’t available anywhere else in the area. They also sell amazing snacks like beer, wine, kombucha, and locally made chocolate bars. Seeing a movie at a/perture is truly an experience in a way that seeing a movie at a more traditional theater just…isn’t.
a/perture opened in 2010, and was a key player in helping to revitalize the now-bustling Winston-Salem downtown area. (As someone who moved to Winston 7.5 years ago, it’s hard to imagine 4th Street as deserted, but it was, in fact, pretty desolate just a few years before we got here. I’m thankful to businesses like a/perture who took a risk in order to make our city such a great place.)
Movie tickets make wonderful holiday gifts if you have some local folks on your list, but seeing a movie this time of year is also a great gift to give to YOURSELF. After all, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season can leave you feeling stretched a little too thin if you’re not careful, and seeing a movie with a friend or significant other can be the perfect way to recharge a bit.
Whether you want to give film as a gift or treat yourself, the folks at a/perture have donated a pair of tickets as their contribution to my Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza!
