Share Purchase

If you value the Al Whittle Theatre facilities you might consider investing in the rich cultural life of the Valley. Why not purchase a share (only $100) in the Acadia Cinema Cooperative Ltd., or give a share to a friend or family member?
Simply download the PDF form to begin the process.

If the new shareholder is at least 19 years of age and a Nova Scotia resident, s/he will receive a $35 credit on their N.S income tax for every $100 share purchased with the Nova Scotia Equity Tax Credit (ETC) program. Under the legislation governing co-operatives,  ACC shareholders members of this non-profit co-op  do not receive financial dividends or special benefits. Our shares never change in value, and each shareholder has one vote no matter how many share have been purchased.

The current ETC is now available and ends February 28.

Payment can be made in cash, by cheque, or e-transfer to

Purchases must be accompanied by a completed share purchase form to qualify for the NS ETC official receipt. (Note that we will soon have a PayPal account too!)
