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, or Three Tomatoes Catering 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.


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.
