Host Your Next Event at the Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema

The Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema is a beautiful, 11,400 square foot facility conveniently located in The Pizitz Building, in the heart of downtown Birmingham’s historic theatre district. The venue offers two state-of-the-art theaters (one is fully equipped to host hybrid meetings and live stream events), one multi-function room, two attractive lounges, and a large bar area.

Sidewalk is now offering rentals of our space for various events such as parties, meetings, private film screenings… and whatever else you can think of!


Birthday party to watch your fav movie with all your friends? Of course.

Hybrid corporate meetings? Sure thing!

Private Karaoke party? We can do it.

Teaching a class and need a classroom space? We have one of those, too.

Video game night? You bring the console, we’ve got the screen.

Film series hosted by your organization? Let’s plan it!

Heck, you can even just rent the bar for your own private happy hour if you want.


We have a full bar and concession stand that can be available during any event upon request. Don’t want what we have to offer? You can also request catering for an additional fee. Choose one of our preferred caterers from our Preferred Catering List¬†for a discounted fee.
