Actual theater bookings

intimate dinner and discussion

Your space looks amazing and although my lectures are usually in theater style settings, I think I would like to have more of an intimate dinner and discussion. Maybe we have dinner first and then we can all gather in the living room for a discussion. :). I'm just now beginning to plan my events, so my dates are flexible.

class for 30 students and lecturer

I was wondering if your studio has availability, the 5th from 3:30-5:00 pm. This would be for a group of 30 students + 1 lecturer (31 total). Are you able to do a theater or classroom style setup?

one day video shoot

I'm line producing a 1x day video shoot and we are looking for a space to film in for a maximum of 13 hours (12 hrs. of filming + 1 hr. lunch). There is a possibility that we would be in the space for less time, as we may need to film inside a movie theater as well. Our shoot date would be Saturday, July 21st. We would have a max of 30x crew + cast with one camera and a few lights.

annual company meetup

I work for a company with about 80 employees and I am planning our annual meetup for all of our local and remote employees. We bring everyone together for a week of workshops, team building activities and celebrate our Anniversary (this year we are celebrating 19 years!). We are interested in renting your theater to host our final event of the week. Our employees will be presenting and pitching ideas to the rest of the company in the style of the TV show "Shark Tank". The theater looks like a great place to carry out our vision! We are also interested in also having some light catering (finger food station) and alcohol.
