Vision, Mission, Purpose and Values


Our vision is to transform the Aron Theatre into a sustainable cultural hub, open to everyone in our community.


Aron Theatre Co-operative is a not-for-profit business owned and controlled by its members. Co-op members participate actively in organizing and successfully running artistic and cultural events. The Co-operative will operate with a triple bottom line, ensuring financial viability, community responsibility, and environmental stewardship.


Aron Theatre Co-operative brings people together to enjoy movies, music and other events.

A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise.


Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.  In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.


The co-operative principles are guidelines by which co-operatives put their values into practice.

  2. Democratic Member Control
  3. Member Economic Participation
  4. Autonomy and Independence
  5. Education, Training and Information
