Be a Part of the Legacy at Santikos Entertainment
Santikos Entertainment, as part of the estate of the late John L. Santikos, was gifted to the John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation in 2015, marking it as the largest single charitable donation in the history of San Antonio and in the United States that year. Santikos Entertainment now exists for the sole benefit of the communities in which it operates. The dollars spent on movie tickets and amenities are funneled back into the local community in the form of donations, sponsorships, grants and programming that educate, cure, support and otherwise enhance lives of the citizens that support Santikos Entertainment.
“We want the public to understand that we all have a stake in creating a vibrant and prosperous community. You can see a movie anywhere, but every time you see a movie at Santikos you become a vital part of our charitable legacy because a portion of every ticket, drink or snack purchased goes back to organizations that improve our society," says David M. Holmes, Santikos Enterprises president and CEO. "All movies have a beginning and an end, but when you see a movie at Santikos, the end of the movie is just the beginning."
The company’s tagline, Be a Part of the Legacy, will be a consistent reminder of the company’s vision and also serves as an invitation to the community to be a part of the mission through its patronage of the Santikos Entertainment venues.
