Fountain Theatre Rental

Book Our Theatre

Rental Policy

Rental Policy applies to the rental of the theatre by other entities. For the protection of the building and murals and the safety of renters, theater rental will be limited to individuals aged eighteen (18) and older.

Information regarding the number of films to be shown, if any, and their format, i.e., DVD, BluRay, etc., as well as all technical information must be discussed directly with Head Projectionist; a separate fee will be incurred.

During the event, theatre staff will open the concession stand; proceeds go to the MVFS.

A board member must be present during the rental of the theatre

Please note: As of August 2021, we are limiting our screening schedule due to COVID-19. Please talk to a board member about available days and times, as they may differ from what is listed above.
