Renting Space

We hope you find this site useful and informative as you consider renting space. Our goal is to make it affordable and easy to use the facilities.

Rehearsals / General Use

The base rehearsal rate is $15 per hour. We offer package rates to performance companies seeking more extensive rehearsal schedules. Additional infrastructure and groups larger than 10 people are negotiated on a case-by-case basis.


The base audition rate is $20 per hour for weekdays and $30 for nights and weekends. This includes tables and chairs for the host. The rate may need to be increased if there are a large number of applicants. A door person is required to let people into the building during the audition.

Photo Shoots

The base student rate is $225 per half day (4 hours or less) and $375 for a full day (8 hours) for a small production team and strobes only. The primary factors that will affect cost are the number of people, electrical usage, and infrastructure required. Use of furniture and the facility as locations must be negotiated prior to the shoot.

Film Shoots

Film shoots for students and low-budget productions are priced in the same way as photo shoots with additional considerations for electric, space used, hours, equipment, and number of cast and crew. For professional shoots, please call to set up an appointment.


The darkroom is $15/hr. All sessions must be booked at least one day in advance, unless you have a pre-arranged schedule with us. Chemicals are not provided.

Classes / Workshops

Classes are arranged on a case-by-case basis. Rates are dependent on class size, frequency, and enrollment costs. Public interest workshops such as social programs and political action meetings may be eligble for free space use. Please call if you are looking to hold a class or workshop in the building.
