Private Events



Catch a film like a Hollywood exec in the 4o-seat Clasen Screening Room; get the VIP experience in the newly renovated Maria & Tommaso Maglione Theatre, with 179 plush leather seats and our widest variety of projection capabilities; or enjoy a private screening in our most flexible and accessible space, the Tom Fries Theatre, which seats 147. Work with one of the Sie FilmCenter’s exclusive catering partners—Biscuits & Berries, Relish Catering, Three Tomatoes Catering or New World Cheese—to create an unforgettable event for your guests. The Sie FilmCenter offers a full-service bar and complimentary parking in a covered 300-space parking garage. It is centrally located minutes from downtown and from Cherry Creek on East Colfax near City Park. The Sie FilmCenter also regularly hosts festivals, program series and other special events, bringing filmgoers and filmmakers together to celebrate the art of the motion picture.

I have always had an excellent experience in my events at Sie. The staff are always friendly, helpful and accommodating. The theater has been a favorite location for retreats for my residents and we look forward to holding events there in the future.
