The Tull Family Theater’s purpose and priority is to fulfill its mission. All other activities are secondary to core purpose of the nonprofit.

The theater very much enjoys making its facilities available for rentals. In fact, rentals help sustain the theater.

Currently, the theater does not have a dedicated event coordinator for rental activities.

2018 Rental Basics

Availability for theater rentals is extremely limited and subject to distributors’ requirements.

    • Mondays are the most flexible day for screening room rentals. Some Tuesday and Wednesdays, and limited Saturday and Sunday mornings are available.
    • For events including alcohol or those with more than 75 attendees, event insurance must be provided. Oftentimes, this is as a low- or no-cost rider to the organization or homeowner’s insurance policy.
    • Food and drinks—except for birthday cake—are limited to those available at the theater’s concessions, which include hot beverages, or to our preferred caterers.
    • Balloons are permitted in the Community Room but not in the screening rooms.

Glitter is not permitted in any of the theater facilities.


Payment in full via check, an insurance certificate and signed contact are all necessary for holding the date and time for rentals.

If you would like to work with a licensed caterer not yet on this list, please let us know. Paperwork must be completed before caterers can access our kitchen.


The cleaning fee will be determined after the event so the state of the room can be assessed. The fee could be $25 to $200, depending on the room’s cleanliness, the impact of food/drink service, the number of people, and the complete, timely removal of catering equipment and other belongings. This payment is due one week after the event.


If you wish to provide refreshments/fellowship/networking in the Esmark and Bouchard Family Community Room in conjunction with a screening, we offer a $50 discount on the screening room. Although opportunities are limited, discounts also are available for renting both screening rooms as well as the entire facility.
