Images Cinema Open For Theater Rentals

Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Images Cinema has entered the first phase of its reopening plan with Private Theater Rentals. 
The theater is available for private rentals for quarantine pods or other groups. 
The rental price starts at $350, with a discounted price of  $275 for Images members. The schedule is flexible, so any night of the week can be a night out at the movies.
Plus, people can also enter Images' raffle for a 1-in-35 chance to win a Private Theater Rental. To buy a $10 raffle ticket, visit Images Cinema's online store,
All current guidelines will be followed, meaning groups can be no larger than 20 people, masks are required and social distancing will be enforced. Images has upgraded its HVAC system to the latest preventive technology, enhanced cleaning procedures are being implemented, and there will be a maximum of one rental per day.
The full list of private rental rules is below and can be found at Images' website, Please read them carefully.
Images Cinema expects the next step in their reopening plans will be public screenings with a limited schedule of screenings, perhaps just on the weekend. Eventually the cinema will reopen to seven-days-a-week programming, but this will depend on many factors: continuing favorable progress against coronavirus, widespread vaccinations, state guidelines and the availability of new films.
Questions about re-opening or private rental reservations requests can be directed to, or the Images Cinema office at 413.458.1039.

Hasty Wants Williamstown to Do the 'Hard Right'

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Forget forsythias.

"I'm anti-partisan," Hasty said in explaining his choice in color scheme. "At this time in the American social climate, a large grouping are hyper-partisan. I chose two colors that represent the two largest third-party organizations. The mayflower outlines the sign as it is the Massachusetts state flower. I'm a 'transplant,' and I thought, 'how fitting.'
