Host An Event


Rialto Cinemas offers venue hire for private screenings, fundraisers, group bookings, presentations, seminars, meetings or any combination of these! Our venue offers comfortable auditoriums (ranging from 34-340 seats) with stadium seating, cinema quality sound, large screens and a diverse selection of films. Plus, we have a dedicated function area, the Long Room, that you could book out as a stand alone venue or use it to break out of the cinema during your event.  Our cinemas are also able to be set up to screen from a variety of other formats, such as material from your laptop. Our fully licensed bar can be booked for your exclusive use and offers an extensive selection of local wines, beers & catering alternatives, along with experienced function staff and a variety of extras to make your event perfect. We also offer great packages on movie treats like popcorn & choctops!
Private Screenings using one of the films playing at the cinema or an upcoming release, can be held as part of a corporate evening for staff or clients, an enjoyable addition to a meeting or presentation, a popular way to fundraise or simply a great staff, social or group event. In some cases, we are also able to assist with private screenings of past releases and screenings of your own films or content.
