The Reel House Foundation was created in 2019 by four friends who wanted to expand just doing the yearly movie minithon event. While we are just getting started our mission is simple – introduce people to forgotten or little seen gems while providing as much benefit as we can local and national charities.
Our signature event is the Mystery Movie Minithon (formerly the Wiseman Mystery Movie Minithon or WMMM) where we show 2 films that are unknown to the audience prior to screening. We provide dinner and merchandise for purchase to make the event a memorable evening of film, drinks, and fun. 2020 will be our 4th event and to date, we have raised over $1200 dollars for The Child’s Play charity.
As we grow, we are looking to hold additional fundraiser showings throughout the year that would enable us to then hold free screenings for local children’s charities and organizations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Each of the fundraiser screenings would be secret movies and for the children’s screenings, we would love to show them age appropriate movies from the past with film discussions after the screening. We want to bring our passion for films to as large of an audience as possible.
