Amplified Sound Policy

  • No amplified sound is allowed by Wake Forest University before 5pm on weekdays.
  • No amplified sound is allowed by the City of Winston-Salem between 10pm and 6am.

Film & Show Screening Policy

The Federal Copyright Act specifies that copyrighted materials, like movies, can be used publicly if properly licensed. However, neither the rental nor purchase of a movie carries the right to exhibit it outside of one’s home; this includes rentals from the university library and online streaming services. If you want to screen a movie, the rights to do so must be purchased. The Office of Student Engagement can assist you with acquiring the proper rights to screen films and shows.
