music listening and release event

I am looking for a space to throw a listening/release event for my upcoming music project next month. It would also include a few live music performances. There would also be lighting and various art pieces set up and displayed for vibe and aesthetic. What stood out to me with your location was the images of the stage with the three walls of projections. It looked amazing and would be something I would hope to incorporate. But, unless I overlooked, I didn't see any image that showcased the entire look and dimensions of that room. My question: Can you possibly show/send an image of some kind that showcases that area fully?
