Situated in New York City is the historic arts building the French Institute. Inside sits the Tinker Auditorium, a private performance hall with ample seating room. Dating back to the 1900s, this venue served as a cultural hub for the French language. Today, the building continues to serve as a linguistic center and also holds the largest library with French books.
The Tinker Auditorium offers a multi-purpose space with a flexible layout. At the focal point of the room sits a performance area with a projector and screen. Curtains line the wall and create an exciting low lit environment. Uplighting casts a subdued glow on the colored drapery. Auditorium style platforms with red carpeting sit adjacent to the staging area. Off to the side is a sweeping staircase that may be used for grand entrances.
The Tinker Auditorium can host events for up to 300 standing guests and 110 seated attendees. The space suits an array of gatherings including launch parties, film screenings, recitals, and more. Portable bars, tables, and chairs can be incorporated into the layout of the room. For further personalization, decor such as flowers and signage may be added. As a final touch, a catering team can provide food and beverages for special occasions.
