Frequently Asked Questions
What is a movie licensing fee?
A movie licensing fee is the amount due to the studio itself so that we have the rights to show that particular movie. The fee can run from $200-$350, depending on the studio and the movie chosen (if the movie is available to be licensed).
Can we have food catered in?
Yes. If you would like a list of catering services in the Burlington area, we’d be happy to assist you. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for any damages or messes made by the caterer for your event.
During rentals, do you allow modifications to the theater space?
No permanent or damaging modifications may be made to the theater. This includes the use of nails, tape or staples to hang objects. Any damages to The Midway Theater that require repair or extra cleanup will be charged to you after your event. We ask that the theater space be left in the condition it was found at the beginning of the rental.
