No other medium-sized professional rental space in Seattle is capable of accommodating the wide range of events presented at the Broadway Performance Hall. These include 35MM and 16MM film and video presentations, lectures and seminars, drama, dance, and music performances. The location, variety, and intimacy of the theatre, along with its historical art gallery help to make it the most popular theatre of its size in Seattle.
