Turner Theatre is a 220-seat movie theater located in Dwight C. Schar Hall in Elon University’s School of Communications. The theatre hosts movie showings for students, faculty, staff and families four days a week when the university is in session: Thursday evenings, Friday evenings, Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons and evenings.

When not scheduled for movie showings, Turner Theatre is available for other university events. Examples of such university uses include an invited speaker, university panel discussion or special school event. All events scheduled in Turner Theatre are open to all of the Elon University community and will be promoted on the theatre website and digital marquee.

If requesting a screening, please note that the hosting organization must secure the public performance rights, which typically cost $500-800. If you have questions about performance rights or Turner Theatre, generally, please contact Abby Igoe, assistant director of multimedia projects, at aigoe2@elon.edu or 336-278-7262.
