The Alhambra Theater seats 331 comfortably within its historic space and is perfect for theatrical and musical productions, intimate concerts, lectures and conferences…and, of course, the backdrop for a most unique and memorable wedding.
FEATURES & OPTIONS
The theater was designed and built before amplified sound. The acoustics are surprisingly good, and a normal speaking voice can be easily heard. Most musical and vocal performances are rarely mic, but if additional amplification is required, as it would be by the stage area, a system is available with lapel and wireless mics. Some production groups have brought in their own audio systems to maximize and record performance sound.
Current lighting is provided by adjustable floods in the front of the stage opening, which are controlled back stage. Lighting in the stage area is controlled by an old fashion light board. Scenery lighting can be set or repositioned to obtain the desired effect.
The original and continued use of the Theater by the Scottish Rite involves scenery that was produce in 1908. The backdrops used to create the various scenes are set up for easy changes using a counter-weighted rope system. Some scenes are available for public use. Please review the section on Rental Areas to view these scenes.
VIDEO SCREEN AND PROJECTION SYSTEM
An in-house theater screen located in the front stage opening can be lowered for viewing film or power point presentations.
WARDROBE & GREEN ROOM
Performers will appreciate our Green Room. Adjacent to the Theater, it provides a private space to dress and rehearse. There are racks for hanging costumes and clothing, an antique 3-view mirror for last minute make-up checks, a private restroom, and room to stretch out (or nervously pace) while waiting for the performance call.
A classic pipe organ is located in the balcony and is available for use by experienced organ players. Its sound makes the room come to life with the joy, excitement, and feeling of the early 1900’s.
