Bearsville Theater Auditorium
The Theater stage is lit by magnificent crystal chandeliers and art deco lighting. It can accommodate live music from bands of any size, and offers direct access to both the sunken bar, the historic dressing rooms, and the VIP Green Room, where you can prepare for your ceremony and entertain your special guests.
Albert Grossman designed his theater as a ‘Listening Room,’ with studio-quality acoustics. Today, both the design of the room and the modern technology that support it, make it perfect for private concerts, receptions, and dance parties. If you would like to have live music for your evening entertainment, we can provide an extensive list of talented musicians. Alternatively, you may decide to bring in your own entertainment and create a unique, unforgettable performance for your guests.

Our 40’ x 15’ Theater Deck adjoins the Lounge and is the perfect space for friendly informal gatherings of 30 people (seated) or up to 50 (standing). The deck overlooks the Sawkill Creek and is named after two old friends — John Sebastian and Fred Neil — who hung out here in the 70’s, writing songs and making music together. John still enjoys the deck to this day.
