Become a LUX Member of Upstate Films!

Support Your Friendly Neighborhood Arthouse Cinema


You Bring the Light! We Bring the Stories!

Since 1972, Upstate Films has delighted and inspired locals and visitors to our region.

We celebrate the best of cinema—foreign films, documentaries, independent and the best of Hollywood old and new—at the Starr Cinema in Rhinebeck and our newly acquired Orpheum Theatre in Saugerties.

All of us at Upstate Films love movies—but we also care deeply about supporting local economic growth, community development and cultural enrichment throughout the Hudson Valley. We are passionate about making a difference in our communities and believe that cinema is a powerful tool for inspiring empathy and bringing people from all walks of life together.

When you join as an Upstate Films member, you’ll receive benefits including discounted tickets. You’ll also help support our mission to support the local economy, provide educational opportunities for our region’s youth and support the work of filmmakers, musicians and artists of all kinds.

We invite you to contribute to the evolution of Upstate Films by becoming a LUX Member today!
