Gorgeous space--very versatile with a number of great props and backdrops. They were very accomodating! I wouldn't suggest this location for filming, as this isn't an isolated space and people are walking in and out and up the stairs, so sound was hard to control. I would definitely recommend this space for photography, events, etc.
