COVID Measures and Rules

Our main theatre holds 300 people (currently reduced to 150) and rentals for less than 100 people are generally not cost-effective. Our basic space rental rate starts at $650 for a weekday event for 6 hours in the space. Additional charges apply for equipment rentals, labor and special services.

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