Here are some common questions and answers regarding our MicroCinema rentals:
Q: How do I go about renting the MicroCinema?
A: Please email our House Manager, Peter, at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about the date and time you’d like to reserve. You will get a response letting you know if your date is available, and if it’s not, some possible alternative dates. Once you’ve nailed down the time slot you’d like to rent, you will be sent a contract in order to hold your time slot.
Q: What does a MicroCinema rental include?
A: You will have private use of the 31-seat MicroCinema room, and the use of its 13-foot screen, 1080p digital projector, 5.1 audio receiver, and Blu-ray/DVD player. Customers are welcome to bring in other HDMI compatible audio/visual equipment (please consult with management if bringing in outside equipment to ensure compatibility).
Q: Can I bring food into the MicroCinema?
A: Yes! You may bring any food you’d like for your event. The only limitation is that you can’t bring any heat sources into the building, ie: candles, hot plates, open flames, sterno, etc. Please be aware that there are no tables in the MicroCinema so food will need to be enjoyed from the cinema seats.
Q: Can I bring alcohol into the MicroCinema?
A: Unfortunately, no. There can be no outside beer/wine/liquor brought into the MicroCinema. However, the Somerville Theatre does have a beer and wine bar in the lobby!
Q: What doesn’t a MicroCinema rental include?
A: We can’t provide ticket sales or marketing for your event. We also do not provide staff to manage or supervise your event.
