Rental fees and more information

Thanks for your interest in hosting your event at Upstate Films. We enjoy working with our patrons on these rental programs and making your event a success.

The biggest challenge is always scheduling; we generally do not rent the theaters during prime time on weekends. Once you’ve reviewed our document, we can discuss the options in more detail.

Fees for private rentals:

  • General public: $675 (2 hours or less block)** $100 for each additional 30 minutes
  • Members: $600 (2 hours or less block) **$75 for each additional 30 minutes
  • Not-for-profit and religious and service organizations and educational institutions: $500 (2.5 hours or less block)
  • *** Lux members get a free theater rental as part of their membership benefits!

Choose from multiple concession packages, including our famous popcorn with REAL BUTTER, both artisanal and classic candies, and local baked goods. We also serve wine, beer and cider.

See HERE for our standard concessions menu and HERE for the concession packages, priced for extra value and group size.

We also offer special services such as birthday wishes on the marquee, pre-show slide, and projection of birthday/tribute videos on our screens. Those fees to be provided upon request.

There are also possibilities for “co-presentations”, exceptional scheduling accommodations and a separate marketing package, considered on a case by case basis. Separate fees provided upon request. 

Disclaimers:

  • Cleaning fees will be applied for excessive mess.
  • All media must be received 72 hours prior to your event for testing.
