Book programs/screening rooms

Hosting a Course at the Media Commons

Two screening rooms are available at the Media Commons for faculty who wish to book single, multiple, or weekly screenings. Priority is given to film and media courses that require a cinema experience. We ask that courses that do not specifically require a movie theatre setting please contact ACE / Academic and Campus Events to make more appropriate arrangements. Please note that availability is limited. Courses are often booked up to 2 semesters in advance. Please contact media.commons@utoronto.ca for course booking inquiries.

Booking a Screening

Student groups are welcome to book screenings at the Media Commons by completing our Booking Request form. Submitting a request does not guarantee you a booking. Please wait for a staff member to contact you and confirm your request. It may take up to 2-3 business days for your request to be answeredPlease note that we do not allow recurrent bookings of screening rooms. As in, groups are unable to request a screening room for a specific time at a set interval (weekly, monthly, etc). We currently allow student groups to have up to two bookings in place at a time. Please understand that there is high demand for screening rooms and this allows us to accommodate far more people. Recurrent bookings are only allowed for U of T faculty (see above) who have made appropriate arrangements well in advance. 

Screening rooms are available during the following hours:

  • Monday to Friday: 9am - 9pm. 
  • Saturday and Sunday: 12pm - 5pm.
