Built in the 1890’s this vintage auditorium played host to Sunday school as late as the 1970’s. Not many have seen or used this space since. The almost floor to ceiling historic windows facing south and west provide amazing natural light on the cloudiest of days. The large colorful stained glass is a bonus. At approx.3300 sq. ft. and 15’ ceilings, there is plenty of space to create in. The walls in disrepair show their age from the accumulated drywall dust of 50 years that pile on the window ledges. This space is a little rough. No nest thermostat or high speed internet for now but it’s so worth it.
(A collection of vintage furnishings coming soon)

The Auditorium includes:


9’ rolls of Black, White and Charcoal paper are standard colors we keep mounted on our backdrop stands. If you must have a particular color for your shoot please bring it with you or make arrangements with us in advance to purchase and pick up. (Fee - $50/roll). If you have flexibility and are able to use what we have, there will be no extra fee.

Please provide us a few color options in your booking comments. We will do our best to accommodate and will communicate in advance if not possible.
