Traditional Rentals

Algonquin Arts Theatre is available for rent for a wide variety of events including speaking events, films, dance recitals and concerts. The adjacent Victoria J. Mastrobuono Studio is also available to rent for smaller events or hospitality events in conjunction with a theatre rental.

Past renters have included corporate presentations, dance school recitals, stand-up comedy and even a wedding!

Cost of rentals varies greatly depending on the date, length of event, amount of equipment, and staffing requirements.
