Movement & Performance Arts Venue

Ideal Arts SpaceEditEdit Description

The Ideal is a former single-screen movie theater originally built in 1911. It was recently restored to be a split-level multi-purpose movement and performance Arts Venue that is versatile enough to be used for dance classes, rehearsals, social dances/events, and live music, comedy or black-box theater performances.

The space comes equipped with a 6-speaker PA sound system, basic stage lighting and seating for 100+ people.

We're seeking renters who need an arts venue to run regular classes or special event performances or social events.
