About the Theater


This fixed setup space is capable of hosting films, small performances, panel discussions, lectures and more.  The Popp Martin Student Union Theater has a maximum capacity of 209 with an additional 2 wheelchair accessible spaces. The theater lobby is available for pre-function tabling, food and beverage service, and more for your event.

Audio Visual Technicians are available to assist with showings in the movie theater. Any event that requires use of the theater booth will require an AV technician to be scheduled. Events that are only connecting a laptop do not need to have an AV technician in attendance.

Additionally, we offer closed captioning on our films. If you have an accessibility need or question, please contact Desmond Brogsdale,, Assistant Director, Operations for the Popp Martin Student Union.

Please note, the Popp Martin Student Union Theater offers afternoon and evening film screenings Thursday through Sunday during the fall and spring semesters.
