COVID-19 Advisory

In light of the current pandemic and the closure of our building we are unable to accept any bookings for events. You may still fill out the form, and we will contact you if and when your specific event might become possible. No financial commitments need to be made at this time. We are awaiting guidance from our City government regarding the future of public gatherings.


Purpose of RENTALS
We prioritize arts events in our rentals. Read more about that in our Purpose Statement. our RENTAL POLICY.

Review our BVOH Good Neighbor and Alcohol Policy

Please note that our main theatre holds 300 people and rentals for less than 100 people are generally not cost-effective. Our basic space rental rate starts at $650 for a weekday event and 6 hours of time in the space. Added to that will be equipment rentals, labor and possibly other fees, depending on event details.

Most event rentals fall between $1,000 and $3,000, but can be more for complex events requiring additional spaces, and more equipment and labor as is typical.
