Theater Rentals

Located in the heart of Westchester County, NY, just 30 miles north of Manhattan, the historic JBFC Theater houses five state-of-the-art movie theaters ranging in capacity from 31 to 249, along with a gallery space that can accommodate large or small groups. We offer a sophisticated yet comfortable setting for corporate events, presentations, premieres, screenings, and private receptions—just a 55-minute train ride from New York City and within a block of the Pleasantville Train Station on the Metro-North Harlem Line.

This space is available for rent by industry professionals, nonprofit organizations, and businesses Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Other times may be available for a higher rental fee.

Many convenient options for food are available within walking distance or by delivery (Blue Hill at Stone Barns is a short five-minute drive away).

For more information please contact rentals@burnsfilmcenter.org to set an appointment with a rentals coordinator. Please include the following information in your email inquiry:

  • Preferred date and time
  • Estimated number of attendees
  • Preferred venue
  • Brief description of your event
  • Your organization name
  • Are you a nonprofit (yes or no)

Due to frequent activities and programs, walk-in inquiries regarding rentals cannot be accommodated.
