The Palm Springs Cultural Center has been fulfilling its mission in the Coachella Valley for over ten years – incubating, producing, and encouraging arts and cultural programs in order to leverage the unique power of creativity to open minds, bridge what divides us, and discover what connects us.

We do this important work because we firmly believe that programs like ours can be transformative, and that they are vital to the overall health and productivity of our community.  If you agree, we hope you will consider volunteering, donating, purchasing a theatre seat, becoming a sustaining member – or all of the above!

The Best Seat In The House

Name A Seat

The best seat in the house can be yours! To celebrate the designation of Theatre One in The Palm Springs Cultural Center as the Historic Camelot Theatre, we are inviting everyone in the community to be a part of this very special Palm Springs institution by purchasing a seat (or several) for yourself or to honor someone else.

Your seat purchase will allow the Palm Springs Cultural Center to maintain and improve the Historic Camelot Theatre, and ensure that it continues to be a state of the art facility for future generations of Coachella Valley residents.

One hundred percent of the dollars raised in our “Best Seat in the House” Program will be used to maintain and improve the theatre. Make one yours today!


Be a part of the Palm Springs Cultural Center experience!

The Palm Springs Cultural Center (PSCC)  relies on the generosity and dedication of hundreds of volunteers year-round. We seek volunteers with a commitment to supporting independent film, theatre and the arts. Volunteering with PSCC means being an active part in your community, engaging with visitors, locals and those in between to incubate, produce and encourage arts and cultural programs.

Volunteers are vital to all of our programs, including Cinema Diverse , American Documentary Film FestivalArthur Lyons Film Noir Festival and our Certified Farmers’ Markets.

We also have ongoing programing throughout the year with many of our community partners including interactive movie nights, Palm Springs Speaks and the Palm Springs Historical Society. Additionally we have one-off comedy shows, our Artist-in-Residence program and community outreach events which keep our volunteers engaged at every level.

For our volunteers we offer unique experiences, full access to programming, as well as our buttered popcorn (it’s that good!).
