Since 1980 they have also been operators of a private screening room and lounge space serving the movie industry and public events which generates additional funding for their programs. They often showcase this private theater to the benefit their donor members with selected movie screenings, author readings, and art receptions as their way of saying Thank You to the caring donors of Variety! They also use this space to host and invite children’s groups that serve developmentally delayed and physically challenged children to enjoy the chance to be a kid, by sitting back and watching their favorite movie in an accepting and understanding environment.
