The BCT Movie Partner Program encourages the promotion of film events at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on Sunday afternoons and evenings. For only the cost of labor and projection equipment ($350 in most cases), this program enables anyone with a film interest to turn Sunday into movie day at the Theater without the usual rental fee.

A great example of this successful cooperation is the 30th anniversary celebration of Breaking Away, held in June 2009. Organized as a benefit for Jill’s House, Maple Street Productions nearly sold out the auditorium. Partnering with other businesses and community organizations, they made it possible to donate $4,000 of the proceeds after cost to the worthy charity.

In addition to screenings that take a single night, festivals and series are eligible to be part of the movie partner program. Other issues to consider before scheduling:

*Your contract cannot be confirmed more than 60 days in advance, although you are welcome to express interest in a date at any time so it can be noted on the calendar.

*You will not be able to access the building before 1pm.

*Film must be the primary aspect of your event, with at least 70% of the event focused on the screening.

If you want to get started with your own movie night at the BCT, call Danielle McClelland at (812) 323-3022 or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

This activity is made possible through support from the Bloomington Community Arts Commission and the City of Bloomington.
