  1. How do I get movie times for a movie that hasn’t opened yet?

  1. I don’t want to pay for the invited children’s parents and siblings to see a movie, but they want to stay. What should I do?
    1. Every person in attendance for the film must pay for a ticket. For birthday parties with scheduled party room times, it is suggested to include additional guest pricing information. For private parties, the charge per person is based on all in attendance, whether they attend the film or not.


  1. I’m not sure how many people are attending. Do I need to contact the theatre with a final count if it’s different than my original booking?
    1. No. Malco only needs to know of a change in your total number if it is a significant addition. (For example, 15 people or more.) However, you must pay for the minimum attendance required for the party.


  1. Do I pay for the estimated number of attendees, or the final number of guests who show up?
    1. You are only charged for the number of guests who attend the party, but must pay for the minimum attendance required for the party. The online party reservation is simply an estimate. Please refer to FAQ #6, as well.
  1. How far in advance should a party be booked?
    1. We suggest booking parties one (1) month in advance. Depending on availability, some parties can be booked on two (2) days notice. Please contact us at 901-761-3480 (local) or 1-800-467-6677 to check availability.
    2. Private Party rental fees must be paid in advance and are reserved up to a maximum of one (1) month in advance. (For example, November reservations are accepted in October.)


  1. How are changes made to my party?
    1. Please contact the reserved theatre and ask to speak with a manager. Phone numbers for all locations can be found at, under the “Times/Locations/Tickets” tab.
  1. Can a room rental fee be paid with a credit card? 
    1. Yes and payment is accepted over the phone. Please call the theatre hosting your party within two (2) days of making the reservation and ask for a manager. Let them know you are having a party and you wish to pay your rental fee by credit card.


  1. Who will watch our gifts and personal items during the movie?
    1. Please make arrangements in advance to remove all personal items when exiting the party room, as Malco Theatres is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
