The Theater

Boasting well-preserved Moorish-inspired design from the 1930’s and an iconic star-lit ceiling, our theater is truly one of a kind. Over 1,400 plush red seats line our orchestra and mezzanine levels leaving plenty of space for large gatherings.

With both the stage and the house at your disposal, the theater can host an endless number of events. Well equipped to handle any film, concert, dance recital, or theater event, our stage has also been host to meetings, intimate “black box” style performances entirely on stage, and a platform for community to organization dialogue.
