RENTAL INFORMATION, GUIDELINES AND POLICIES FOR
THE HISTORIC PLAZA THEATRE
Thank you for choosing the Plaza Theatre to host your screening and/or event. Built in
1939, the Plaza Theatre is Atlanta’s oldest operating independent cinema and we are
happy to have you be a part of that continuous history. The Plaza Theatre is available to
rent for film screenings, business and corporate meetings, civic gatherings, and
commercial, television, & film shoots. Please be aware that all dates are subject to

purposes, please inquire for hourly rental rates. Additional fees may apply.
RENTAL FEES INCLUDE: A Concession staff member, a Projectionist, placement on
marquee on the day of your event, use of a microphone, and two tables. Listing on the
website, inclusion in any online / print showtime listings, and promotion through social
media is also a possibility as long as marketing material is given to the Plaza staff at
least 10 days prior to an event. Any use of these items must be requested at least 10
days in advance to allow for proper scheduling.
TIME & OVERAGE: We strongly encourage you to plan the amount of time needed
for your event to allow for the full needs of your event. The rental fee covers a specific
minimum 150-minute use of an auditorium. Use of the auditorium is considered from the
moment access is available until the last guest leaves and Plaza Staff clean up can
begin to reset the auditorium. Any time over is calculated at 30-minute increments; 20%
of your total rental rate; 30 minutes over is calculated at 30% of your total rental rate,
the second 30 minutes is at 40%, the thirst 30 minutes is at 60% and so on. This policy
is to strongly discourage risking overage as this negatively impacts program and labor
schedules unexpectedly. Any overage penalty time must be paid immediately via cash
or credit card (+2% credit card fee). Additional use of the auditorium or other Plaza
Theatre space must be coordinated in advance.
RENTAL DEPOSIT: Rental dates are only secure upon receipt of signed contract and
full payment of the deposit. We only accept cash, money order, or certified check.
