Private Events

Did you know the Buskirk-Chumley Theater is available to rent for any sort of private event, from birthday parties to corporate retreats to weddings? Due to COVID-19, health guidelines currently limit attendance to 45 in the 600-seat auditorium allowing a generous amount of space for your guests to enjoy a socially distanced event in our beautiful, centrally-located, historic theater. 

Have something in mind? Contact our Events Director at 812-323-3020 ext 2 or events@buskirkchumley.org to discuss the possibilities! We’ve also put together this handy 2020 BCT Private Events Guide to help you get started.

If you are ready to rent, check out our availability calendar to confirm that your date is not already booked, and then contact our Events Director at 812-323-3020 ext 2 or events@buskirkchumley.org.


At the BCT, you can now safely watch a movie (or even host a movie marathon!) on the big screen. Are you looking for a safe birthday party idea? Maybe a group “date night”? Or maybe you want to produce your own Mystery Science Theater 3000 experience! Whatever your goal, we can help you set up a dine-in theater experience, with fresh popcorn and locally-sourced refreshments. We’ll take care of cleanup and technical needs!

*Independently obtaining movie rights will be required ahead of time. Though we can’t guarantee all movies will be available to rent, we will work with you to find movies and quotes for obtaining their rights.


Sometimes a Zoom call just doesn’t cut it. With access to the venue from 8 am to midnight, you can host lectures and training sessions in multiple waves. For real, in-person communication.


Since COVID-19 restrictions have loosened, the BCT has started hosting a new kind of event. We’ve worked out safe-seating charts, new systems for concessions and amenities, and ticketing for virtual attendance. We’re here to work with you to make this the perfect event without compromising the safety of you and your guests.
