Performance Hall

The hall also has camera capture capability.

We can mix live performances and, if necessary, edit them. Therefore, any event can be captured and turned into a DVD. The hall has a sound system that can accommodate up to sixteen instruments or vocals with plenty of power. A projector for playing movies or PowerPoint presentations is available.

The performance hall has old-fashioned ambiance from being restored to its original City Hall days. Its options of modern technology make the space a very nice venue to present your event.


We can host plays, bands, business meetings, movies, television productions—any event you can think of. There is also a set of black curtains that can envelope three-fourths of the hall perimeter.  We can also provide seating for up to 130 guests.
