We currently do not have any job openings at The Screening Room.

Venue Rentals

Due to the major renovation expansion project currently underway at our cinema, we are not taking any venue rentals (public or private) until Spring 2018. We look forward to renting out the cinema (rates ranging from $150-$500) once our space has been upgraded and we’ve added a third screen!

About The Screening Room

The Screening Room is an independent movie theatre, locally owned and operated by Wendy Huot. The cinema is committed to bringing a wide selection of films to the big screen in Kingston; we show movies that don’t play anywhere else in the region. Our atmosphere is more intimate and down-to-earth than the multiplexes; we are hyper-focused on serving the wide range of movie-watching interests within Kingston community. Our popcorn is the best in town (cooked in coconut oil) and we serve tea in china mugs.

Wendy has run the cinema in 2011, taking over from Terry, who owned & ran the cinema for the 10 years before that. Dan Wannemacher founded and built the theatre in the mid-1990’s.

Tribute to Dan Wannemacher, founder of The Screening Room.
