Rental Guidelines

Please note that The Roxie Theater is available for events that are considered, based on the sole judgment of management, to be consistent with our mission and image. The space is not available for ceremonial events such as weddings, funerals, wakes, graduations, or religious services. Additionally, events that include a live band are discouraged, although acoustic musicians may be permissible provided that they play at a volume that doesn’t interrupt the film-viewing experience of audiences in other auditoriums. Please notify us during your initial inquiry if your event will require a performance.
