Films FAQ:

What kind of movies are shown?

The films we typically show are 'second run', meaning they major releases that have left the theater, but are not yet available for purchase on DVD/Bluray. We also show cult classics, such as Rocky Horror Picture Show, and documentaries.

When/where are movies shown?

We typically screen films Friday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union. If the film is a popular release and we anticipate a large attendance we'll add a second screening at 9:30 p.m. If the movie we are showing has a running time longer than 2.5 hours, we will advertise different screening times. For an accurate time and location view our full schedule HERE.

Is there an admission charge for the movies? 

All movies are FREE and open UW students, staff, faculty & Community members!

I'm a Student Organization or department, how do I get movie rights to screen a film publicly on campus?

Purchasing a one-day media licensing is required for screening of any form of multimedia (film, movie, documentary, tv show, etc.) in a public space i.e. outdoors, at the park, outside your home, indoors at the University regardless if it's a classroom, reserved meeting room, or private event at a venue. Film licensing rights can range an average from $800 - $1,200+ depending on the FILM and INTENDED USE. 

Email us at stuorgs@uwyo.edu or submit a movie inquiry interest form and we'll be happy to guide you in the right direction or get a quote for you - movie inquiries are required at least 14 business days before your intended screening date. 

Not sure what movie options you want, take a look at SWANK Motion Pictures for a recommendation of films.
