Making Theatre One The Number One Space For Your Event


With the assistance of CUNY, BMCC will be revitalizing Tribeca PAC’s 900+ seat Theatre One – the longest operating performance venue in lower Manhattan.

Starting this summer. The project includes:

* New Energy Saving House Lights!
* Brand New Carpeting!
* New State-of-the-Art Audio Systems!
* Safety Upgrades to meet new standards!
* Improved Rigging System for the backstage!
* Patron Monitors in the lobby spaces, so you don’t miss a moment!
* Remote Ticketing Sites!

We’ll be busy working on this for a few months, but our re-opening will be better than ever!

Theatre Two Still Available!

Theater Two will continue to be available for events and will now take over some of the Theatre One activity. If you have an interest in holding your event at BMCC Tribeca PAC, now is the time to book a date in our intimate 260 seat Theatre Two.
