About Rutgers Cinema
Rutgers Cinema is a state-of-the-art, three-screen cinema featuring digital projectors, stadium seating and surround sound. The Cinema will host first-run movies, film festivals, special events and much more.
Hours of Operation
Rutgers Cinema is the university's most comfy lecture hall during the day Monday through Friday. But when the professors leave, it's showtime! Throughout the summer months, movies will be scheduled to start daily within the 1 o'clock hour.
During the school year, movies and special events will generally be scheduled to start around 6pm Monday through Thursday and as early as 5:30pm on Fridays. On weekends, films could begin as early as 10am. Check out our showtimes for the most up-to-date schedules.
We’re located in The Plaza at Livingston Campus at Rutgers University, across the street from the Livingston Student Center. Our address is 105 Joyce Kilmer Ave, Piscataway, NJ and we’re easily accessible via the university’s bus transportation system. You can’t get any more convenient than that.
Rutgers Cinema Visitors (no one with a Rutgers Permit) can park for free in our designated lot, 112A, Monday through Friday 4pm – 2am. It is a subsection of about 75 spots behind the cinema in lot 112. The Cinema lot 112A can also be used on the weekend.
Visitors are also provided free parking on weekends, starting 5pm on Friday through 6am on Monday, in the Yellow and Green Lot. However, this does not include game day parking for the RAC. The full Rutgers Athletic schedule with listings for the RAC can be found here.
Visitors are also provided with weekday parking limited to 1 hour in the first row of the Green Lot and 30 minutes on-street parking on Rockafeller Rd and Joyce Kilmer Ave. To identify the first row of the Green Lot, look for the visitor parking sign behind Kilmer's Market.
