PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – The Paramount Center for the Arts is looking for members, and becoming a member during the Paramount's weekend membership drive will bring extra benefits and savings.

"There will be somebody here in the box office all weekend," Paramount director Lisa Reiss said Friday. "Tomorrow the box office is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and then there will be somebody in the theater at 6 for the movie, so even if they leave a message at the box office someone will definitely call them back."

Those who become members this weekend will be entitled to see a free movie this weekend: "To Rome With Love" on Friday at 7:30 p.m., "Monty Python's Holy Grail" on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. or the opera "Peter Grimes" on Sunday at 1 p.m.
