First-Time Renters: You are required to attend a free orientation, offered the first Saturday and third Tuesday of each month. You must register for the orientation in advance by calling 303-837-1341 or reserving online by filling out the Darkroom Orientation Request form below. Orientations cap at a maximum of 6 individuals; once full, you will be wait listed. All renters who have not attended an orientation at our Bannock Street location will not be allowed to use our darkroom rental facilities.
Darkroom Renters: If you have attended the required orientation and been approved for darkroom use, then you may schedule a session by calling 303-837-1341 or online by filling out the Darkroom Reservation Request form below.
Note, rentals are only final after date confirmation from CPAC staff. Renters must be at least 18 years or older. Renters must be at the intermediate level or above, unless accompanied by a CPAC tutor (see tutoring rates below). Basic chemicals are provided. Renters are responsible for paper and supplemental supplies. Renters must follow safety protocols; renters who do not follow CPAC Darkroom’s Rules and Regulations will be denied access.
*Chemical fees are based on 11×14 trays and “normal” usage. Processing more than 4 rolls of 35mm film or printing over 35 prints requires a higher fee to offset chemicals costs. If you choose to bring your own chemicals, please note: we do not allow powder chemicals to be mixed in our space.
