About Us

Community Access

Our staff is dedicated to helping make these events successful, rewarding and entertaining experiences for both the producers and audiences alike.

If your group or organization is interested in renting our facility, please call our General Manager, Richard Grossberg (718-951-4600 Option 9) for more information about our rental and Community Showcase policies. Also, email us at Rentals@BrooklynCenter.org

So, if you are planning to produce an event, anything from a small recital to a Broadway-style extravaganza, look first to Brooklyn College as your venue of choice. And if you are looking for a wide variety of affordable, edifying entertainment that the whole family can enjoy -- again, choose Brooklyn College; we're right around the corner in your neighborhood!

Please Note: Although the College is very careful to insure that the shows brought into our theatres do not contain offensive or inappropriate material relating to language, sex, violence or bigotry, the producers of each event are solely responsible for their show's content.


You can host your next event in the elegant, 2350 seat art-deco Claire Tow Theatre (formally the Walt Whitman Theatre), which will beavailable for rental booking dates beginning in late 2019.

Currently the facility is under a major renovation and refurbishment. Rentals are at reasonable, competitive rates for community groups and organizations.
