Private Movie Parties


We are delighted to be able to offer a safe and fun way for you to watch movies on the big screen again while supporting the Sedona International Film Festival and Mary D. Fisher Theatre during this unprecedented time.


We are now offering daily opportunities for private screenings in a healthy and controlled environment for small groups. Our theatre is perfect for your private event, including Private Movie Parties, family events, employee appreciation events or special movie nights for your patrons and guests!


We’re pleased to offer pricing significantly lower than our usual rental rates to accommodate theatrical experiences during this unusual time. The theatre is available for up to 33 people for a two or three-hour block of time. The Mary D. Fisher Theatre has a 112-seat capacity, so this gives you plenty of space to socially distance.
