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 an interest in film to turn Sunday into movie day at the theater without the usual rental fee. Options include organizing a fundraising event, sharing a documentary about an important issue, hosting a film festival, or developing a creative arts event with a focus on film.


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 our booking 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.
