Theater of NYIT Auditorium on Broadway

About the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway

New York Tech’s NYIT Auditorium on Broadway will remain closed indefinitely due to damage caused after the Jan. 13, 2020 water main break.

The NYIT Auditorium on Broadway, located at 1871 Broadway, extends the NYIT-New York City campus footprint north into the heart of the culturally dynamic Lincoln Center area.

The Space

The 9,000 square-foot NYIT Auditorium on Broadway features a neutral color palette, glass exterior, high ceilings, and a state-of-the-art auditorium with ergonomically designed seating for 262 guests. This former neighborhood movie theater has been transformed into a well-appointed, ADA-compliant venue for film screenings, panel discussions, and multimedia presentations.

The Atrium and Concourse

Perfect for cocktails and conversation, our street-level atrium boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that face Broadway, welcoming the light and energy of NYC’s most famous avenue. Clients can brand the atrium entrance with two 65-inch flat screen monitors and two 12-foot-wide projection areas. An escalator and elevator connects the atrium to the auditorium and lower-level concourse event space. With a combined 2,430 square feet, these two lobby areas are ideally suited for registration, continental breakfasts, and cocktail receptions.

The Auditorium

The 262-seat auditorium features a 26-by-10-foot handicapped-accessible platform stage with podium that can be set with directors’ chairs and accent tables to accommodate up to eight speakers.

The Technology

The NYIT Auditorium on Broadway is equipped with high-definition and digital cinema (DCP) projection, Dolby 7.1 surround sound, HD and SD video conferencing capabilities, and hi-speed wired and wireless broadband internet. We support both Mac and PC platforms; offer lavalier, handheld, and countryman microphones; and can provide wireless presentation clickers and a confidence monitor for speaker support.

Our skilled audiovisual technicians will review your needs with you to determine the optimal setup for a successful outcome.
