Kimmel Theatre, completed in 2003, boasts a 265-seat auditorium and the most current technology in theatre production. Key features include a full rigging system, computerized automated lighting, color mixing scrollers, LCD projection, and a state of the art sound system with wireless body mics.
The theatre is housed in Youngker Hall, a stunning addition to the Cornell Campus. The building won an honor award for excellence in architecture in the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Central States Region.
Youngker is connected to historic Armstrong Hall, which underwent a major renovation in 2003. Armstrong gained an intimate black-box performance space -- the Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre, along with a spacious scene shop, modern classrooms, and office space.
For the benefit of the students and guests who use our facilities, we make available drawings of our theatre spaces as well as inventories of our light and sound equipment.
