The UCLA Nimoy Theater will offer donors inspiring opportunities for recognition of their generosity.
The sensitively designed and
renovated interior will be a
flexible performance space
that supports emerging contemporary practice across all disciplines, and will be the soul of the UCLA Nimoy Theater.
The expansive lobby will establish the atmosphere of the theater experience, welcoming guests and creating anticipation for upcoming performances;
it will be large enough to
accommodate all guests pre- and post-performance.
Prominently located and highly visible, the bar will offer casual food and beverage choices—both alcoholic and non-alcoholic—for pre- and post-show audiences.
An upstairs space and balcony will offer an intimate and exclusive setting for VIPs and patrons before, during or after a performance.
A small balcony at the rear of the interior will create a flexible and intimate space for VIP
patrons during events and will also be a possible location for sound-mix station, special
lighting or other equipment.
The green room and adjacent spaces will comfortably accommodate an 18-person company as they rehearse, prepare and dress for a performance as well as create a relaxed lounge for post-performance.
A concert grand piano will be used for music programs of
all types – jazz, contemporary, global and roots.
A dedicated artist entrance
at the rear of the theater
will give direct access to the green room for artists and
their special guests.
A new box office will face the busy sidewalk of Westwood Boulevard and will serve both will call and on-site sales customers.
A small dressing room will provide artists space to dress and prepare for performances.
New gender-neutral restrooms will be located upstairs near the reception area.
Fixed seats (128)
The Auditorium will accommodate up to 299 seats, with
128 permanently fixed and
raked seats, each of which
can be named for a lover of
contemporary performing arts.
