Rice Cinema is located in the Rice Media Center on the Rice University campus, inside of entrance 8, University Blvd. at Stockton Dr., (first building on the right hand side after you enter campus).
Machines at the entrance gates will instruct the driver to insert a
credit card (American Express, VISA, MasterCard or Discover). When the
gate opens and the vehicle enters, the computer's "parking meter"
begins. Upon leaving, the visitor drives to the exit gate and inserts
the same credit card. It is very important to use the same credit card
used at entry while exiting, otherwise the computer will not recognize
the card. The gate will open within a few seconds, at which time the
meter stops. The computer calculates the time, checks for fee approval
and automatically bills the credit card. IMPORTANT - if you are issued a
validation, please insert it FIRST into the machine, it will keep the
validation. Then, insert the credit card used at the entry and the gate
At the garage entrance, the driver uses his credit card or pulls an
entry ticket from the machine to open the gate. The visitor is
instructed to park on the first floor (B1). If the visitor pulled a
ticket, he or she will carry the entry ticket with them when they exit
the car. When ready to leave, the visitor stops at the "pay-on-foot"
machine near the elevators. As instructed by the machine, the visitor
inserts the ticket into the machine and is shown the amount owed. The
visitor may then pay with cash (coins or paper currency) or credit card.
The machine issues an exit ticket. The visitor then drives to the exit
gate, inserts the exit ticket, and the gate opens. To print a receipt,
the visitor can push the button next to the word "Receipt" on the
pay-on-foot machines. IMPORTANT - if you are issued a validation,
please insert it FIRST into the machine, it will keep the validation.
Then, insert the credit card used or ticket pulled at the entry and the
gate will open.
Please note: When entry tickets are used, multiple
tickets may be paid sequentially using a single credit card. When
entering by inserting a credit card, only one car may enter per credit
buses available at most times. Please visit the sites below for more
information on parking, shuttle service, and getting around campus.
