2400 square feet of space

“All of Velocity’s staff was so great to work with. Tech could not have been smoother. It was really lovely to be the producers of a show but have the space to focus on performing. Through both of the shows I was 100% confident that what needed handling was handled well by the team Velocity provided.” – Callie Swedberg, Access Velocity Independent Producer

Our Founders Theater is 2,400 square feet and offers flexible seating arrangements for audiences large and small. It features hardwood floors, a flexible lighting plot, a state-of-the-art sound system and a digital video projection system. Our Founders Theater functions as a black box, white box or as a raw space with exposed brick walls and skylights. Theater rental includes use of our entire space (the theater + 2 studios—Kawasaki and Steward—for use as a crossover and dressing room), 110 chairs, optional floor seating, moveable bar, and baby grand piano.

Founders Theater is available to rent through our Access Velocity program which provides theater space, production assistance, house management, marketing consultation, social media support and other necessary services to support independent artists and groups to self-produce their engagements.
