3. Public Screening Rentals

If you wish to show a film to the public as an individual or organization, you can do that too! 

Please note that any film that is shown to the public requires a screening license or license from the filmmaker directly, which can range anywhere from $100-$800, depending on the film and distributor. This can be obtained by The Grand and we will bill you (separate from our theater rental fee), or obtained by the individual or organization putting on the event.

Please ask if you have any questions on this!
