According to the Facebook page, GQT Huntington 7 delivers movies, munchies and memories with the best in value, cleanliness and customer care. Featuring seven screens with all digital projection and all stadium seating. Doors open half hour before the first movie.

GQT Movies owns several theaters in Indiana and several other states. The company not only offers individual movie viewings in its theaters but also has private event packages for special events. According to the company the packages are perfect for church groups, organizations, clubs, fraternities/sororities, sports teams, customer or employee appreciation events and more.

Birthday, anniversary and other celebrations include special pricing, and family gatherings are welcome. Movies can be included in the event and older selections are available by request and at an additional cost.

Prices include 25, 50 and up to 100 person screenings and include a reserved and private auditorium for the feature currently being shown at the time of the event. Rental is based on availability at the time of booking.  Three different pricing packages are available for those planning a birthday party.

VIP Cards are available that can be distributed to employees, customers or those you want to treat. VIP admissions are discounted, vary by theater and require a 25-card minimum purchase. Sponsored showings are available for groups such as veterans, seniors or families, and are for as many guests as the capacity of the auditorium will accommodate.
