  • We visited here to see a documentary movie about Linda Ronstadt, which was great by the way, but also walked the art gallery to see local artist works. Very cool.  more »
  • Neat place! I'm not big into art and I still think this place is cool. What I would like to do some time is see whatever movie they have in their theatre there as it is usually an indie movie and I am really into indie movies.
  • We came here for a wedding reception, and was blown away by the venue. With a cafe and gift shop on the first floor, and multiple art exhibits and studios on the additional floors, there was plenty to see while waiting for the bride and groom to have their photos taken. The architecture of the building is industrial and just as artistic and the art. The venue where the reception was held was light and airy and just perfect. The food and staff was tasteful. We had a great experience today.
