O’Neil Cinemas Cares is our organization that gives back to local Southern New Hampshire and Eastern Massachusetts communities through donations, sponsorships and local charity events.
We have partnered with both local and national organizations including:
Stephen Arkell Scholarship Fund
In the summer of 2015, O’Neil Cinemas held a heroes event in conjunction with the release of Fantastic Four and raised money for a scholarship fund in the name of Brentwood Police Officer Stephen Arkell, who was shot in the line of duty in the spring of 2014.
Cocheco Valley Humane Society
In the fall of 2015, O’Neil Cinemas partnered with the Cocheco Valley Humane Society to raise money for its organization, which helps find animals homes in the region.
American Red Cross
The need for blood donation is at its peak during the holiday season, and O’Neil Cinemas frequently partners with the American Red Cross to host blood drives, including one on Christmas Eve.
End 68 Hours of Hunger
End 68 Hours of Hunger aims to combat the 68 hours of hunger children experience on the weekends when they’re not able to get free breakfast and lunch at school. During the 2016 Back to School season, O’Neil Cinemas collected food for area children for this organization, in a two-week food drive in August.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters
O’Neil Cinemas is proud to offer all Bigs and Littles that show proper ID $5 movie admission, per person, every Sunday.
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally-supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Children in our programs have better confidence, avoid risky behavior, and do better in school. In as little as four hours a month, mentors make a Big difference!

O'Neil Cinemas Participates in Extra Life
Our team, here at Oneil Cinemas, has made it our mission to help our community when the opportunity arises. This time, via our Oneil Cares program, Oneil Cinemas is on a mission to save kids through video games, and we need your help.
Each of our team members has chosen our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.
On October 25th, 2014, we’ll be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life and it’s our sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to that team member’s chosen hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.Last year, Extra Life raised more than 4 million dollars to save kids, but in 2014 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher.We can’t do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy!
Thank you for caring for our kids!
