Corporate Events

Employee Appreciation & Team Building

Treat your team to some beers and a movie. They deserve it. If you want to make them work for it you can have your team building meeting in the lounge before the movie rental in the theater.

Meetings & Presentations

Your PowerPoint is going to look just fantastic up there on the big screen. All you need to bring is your laptop (with HDMI port!) and you’ll be good to go. Celebrate your fabulously successful meeting with a film of your choice and some tasty beverages.

Client Appreciation

Show your clients the red carpet treatment at FilmBar. We partner with several Downtown Phoenix restaurants who can cater your event. Host your guests in the lounge with drinks and food in the lounge prior to enjoying your movie in the theater.


Private Parties

Birthday parties, family gatherings, fundraisers..

Choose your (or another’s) favorite movie, guilty pleasure, or anything else. You can personalize your event with photo slideshows and home movies. We promise to keep it a secret. The fun options are endless!

Holiday parties, book clubs, girls’ nights, your sports team’s highlight reel, video game night, even a movie….whatever you want. We can work with you to tailor your event to your needs and ideas.



Rental FAQs

Pricing depends on the day, time, length of your event and what films or services you require.  As a guide, daytime pricing is lower than evenings. There is availability for events Friday through Sunday during the day, but weekend evening rentals are not currently available.

We can accommodate events on Friday, Saturday &  Sunday in the daytime. For now, we have only one screen and the theater needs to be open to the public on weekend evenings for our regular programming.

You will have exclusive use of the theater for the duration of your rental. If your event is outside of our normal business hours, your party will also have the exclusive use of the lounge area. During our scheduled opening hours (after 5pm) the lounge will be open to the public, but the use of the theater will still be exclusive to you. If you are bringing handouts or decorations we will need a 15 minute period before and after your event for set up/clean up.

A deposit equal to 20% of rental fee is required to secure your event. Full payment required 14 days prior to date of event. Cancellations inside 14 days from the event date will result in a partial refund of 50%. 

We serve an extensive range of draft & bottled beer and cider, and a choice of selected wines as well as traditional cinema popcorn, soda and candy.  We also serve (extremely delicious!) tamales, from the awesome Tamale Store in Phoenix.

Yes!  Our primary catering partner is Carly’s Bistro. We’ve worked with them for years.  They’re reliable, professional and their food is delicious! If you’ve got your own caterer, however, you’re very welcome to bring them in, too.  It’s your event!

This is almost limitless. Almost🙂 The earlier you can advise us of your desired film, the easier it will be for us to procure it!

Of course! We require that we receive the media (DVD or BluRay) a minimum of 72 hours prior to the event for testing.  We want to make sure everything works:-)

Yes. We can promote your event on the FilmBar web site and sell tickets via our ticketing platform.  As it’s your event, ticket pricing is your call, but there is a ticketing fee of 99c per ticket (paid by the ticket purchaser). FilmBar retains 10% of the gross ticket sales.
