Rental Rates

Our rates are dependent on the time of year and the time of day. Our 2 large auditoriums are generally not available Friday and Saturday nights, though exceptions can be made. As each rental is different, we encourage you to call us with your rental request and we can work out pricing and details that work for each situation.

Film rental:

If your event includes a special film screening, you may be responsible for a licensing fee.  Film licensing fees vary.  Red River Theatres can make all arrangements for you, but you will be responsible for the film fees. 

Private Screenings:

Red River Theatres can offer private screenings of any film currently playing in our theaters. Prices vary depending on time of year and time of day.  Arrangements must be made at least 2 weeks in advance.   


Red River Theatres is happy to pencil in your reservation. However, we will not hold a date beyond one week unless we receive a 50% deposit. If another request for the same space comes in during your 1-week reservation, you will be contacted and asked to confirm the reservation by paying a deposit or lose it.

Please Note: if your event requires canceling one of our commercial film show times (if available), pricing will increase substantially. Canceling peak commercial show times will cost even more. Auditorium choice, event duration, time of day and day of week also affect pricing. Not all dates are available
