Movie Frequently Asked Questions

How much is movie admission?
We offer discount movies at only $6.50 per movie and on Monday & Tuesday we offer a completely unique opportunity to experience the Drafthouse for only $2 Movie Admission.

What movies are you playing in the future?
Because we are a sub-run theater we do not know which current top box office releases that will be available to us until the week of the Movie's premier at the Drafthouse. The best way to stay up to date with what we are playing is to sign up for our newsletter.

What is a sub-run movie theater?
A sub-run theater is a movie theater that shows films after they have been "released" from first-run. As a sub-run theater we show top box office films after they are premiered and before they are released to DVD or pay per view. Remaining a sub-run theater allows us certain benefits. (1) We can keep our movie admission priced discounted at $6.50. (2) We can show multiple films and events (like live music and comedians) during the same week. (3) We generally have more freedom and control of our programming by remaining a sub-run theater, unfortunately we cannot show a movie until the movie studio's release the film to sub-run. The sub-run period is typically 1 to 3 months after a movie has been initially released to first-run theaters.

Do you allow smoking in your movie theater?
No Smoking
