Starting Friday, Oct. 2!

Parasite movie poster

Good news, Kids! Starting Friday, Oct. 2, Darkside Cinema will be open for private screenings for small household groups. You're probably asking yourself, "Self, what does that mean?" Funny you would ask. We were able to bring back one of our favorite movies, PARASITE, to see on the big screen. What a great excuse to get out of the house and back to the movies with minimal risk of exposure.

To be clear, we are adhering to all current Benton County, State of Oregon rules, and CDC recommendations that allow us to rent our auditoriums to small household groups. We've made updates to the facilities and made physical modifications to make the theater safe for you and for us. We have strict protocols for safely serving you, with auditorium cleaning between rentals and mask requirements for every person in your party.

In this new plan—midway between complete shutdown and completely opening for the public—we're ready to welcome you and your family/cellmates/dance partners. You know, people with whom you're totally comfortable sharing breathing space. You'll have an auditorium all to yourselves to watch a movie. We will have PARASITE available or you can send an email to events@darksidecinema.com and we'll work out something for another movie.

We offer a two-hour rate, and you can add more time on a prorated basis if you like. All rentals will include $50 credit for snack bar goodies, food, and drinks.

So, here's the deal: Sunday through Thursday, rentals are $150 for about two hours. With that, you get a $50 snack bar credit. Friday and Saturday rentals are $200 for about two hours with the same $50 snack bar credit.

When you're ready to reserve a time and day, email us at events@darksidecinema.com and we will work with you to make it happen. Would you like to see a movie that is currently playing, or did you have one of your choosing in mind?

When we promptly get back to you, we will be including a list of all the cool stuff we're doing to keep you safe and some things you gotta agree to do while you're here. Such as: Everyone in your party must wear a mask that covers nose and mouth, except when you are inside the auditorium you've rented. There will be no exceptions.

*** If anyone in your party has an issue wearing masks, we encourage renting one of our virtual films and watching at home. This is a way for us to accommodate your wish to watch a movie without adhering to our mask requirements.

To reserve a time, please email us at events@darksidecinema.com and add Private Rental to the email's subject line. We will respond to emails in the order they come in.

Thank you for working with us through these "unprecedented times." And thanks for sticking with us. We appreciate you, and look forward to seeing you back at the Darkside.
