The Times Center

The 378-seat auditorium for the Times Center is a flexible venue that hosts and broadcasts a wide range of events, from internal meetings to the now well-known Times Talks series. With state-of-the-art performance lighting as well as audio and video systems, the space is as fully equipped to accommodate music, dance and multimedia performances as it is to support town hall meetings, special events and conferences.

The rear wall of the stage has three views which change the character of the room to suit the gathering’s needs: glass, revealing the building’s interior garden, a blackout shade and a translucent shade for a transparent lighting effect. The theatre’s back-of-house spaces include a full-service greenroom with audio and video playback from the stage, two dressing rooms, a private restroom and production office facilities for event producers.
