The Space

The locker room is a 1030 square foot historic set of 8 rooms available for film shoots, photo shoots, arts rehearsals, and meetings. The rooms, located beneath a church, were abandoned and ignored since the 1970s. From October 2018 through April 2019, the space was renovated and is now available for your use. Thus, the look of the space is raw and industrial. Most of the floors are concrete. The bathroom and shower room are tiled. Many of the walls have flaking paint jobs and weathered areas. There's exposed piping, wood beams, and unique materials and textures everywhere. A video tour of the venue is available here: https://youtu.be/-e4rTNrMufc The Shower Room has four brutal, beautiful vintage black shower stalls with working water spouts. The front door has a speakeasy style password window, which can be a fun prop for certain shoots and events. The space lets in very little daylight. The main doorway to the space can let in daylight, if left open. The Pre-shower Room has one window that lets in a crack of daylight, but can be fully blocked for total darkness. This allows photo and video work to have total control over the lighting. There are newly installed power outlets in every room, each with two three-prong 110 volt sockets. There are ceiling lights in all of the rooms. Some of the lights are outfitted with edison bulbs for low mood lighting. Some of the lights are outfitted with bright fluorescent bulbs to allow sight. You are free to adjust the lighting as you see fit. The space is equipped with a powerful WIFI network. Phone reception in the space is often weak, depending on your carrier. The space is highly set designed because of a performance that regularly takes place there. Thus, this space is somewhat delicate and is not a good fit for all groups. For groups that would like to carefully utilize our set design for their own purposes, they are welcome to. In some of the rooms, the set design can easily be nudged to the side. For example, a table and chairs in one room can be moved to another. In other rooms, the set design will require more effort to move. Specifically, the hung fabric in the (Actual) Locker Room and the balloon tent in The Balloon Room are more time-intensive to move. These can be moved for a custom fee. Contact us to discuss. Renters are able to safely store their equipment in the space overnight. Renters are able to be in the space 24 hours, 7 days a week, with the exception of Sundays, 9am to 3:30pm. Note before renting that there are several times when church services are happening on the opposite side of the property. A food pantry and soup kitchen happens every Wednesday afternoon. Moderate to loud sound bleed happens during the following times: Wednesday from 9am to 6pm, and the first Friday of every month. We regret that at this time, our space does not offer wheelchair access. We’ve spent the last year restoring this basement from the 1800s, but we are not yet at the point where we can afford to build ramps or elevators. With the help of your rentals, our budget will get there. Thank you for your patience. Keep in mind our special weekday morning rates. Between 4am and 9am, the space is available for $40 per hour. The locker room is located on Bushwick Avenue near the Halsey J and Gates J stations, and a 12 minute walk from the Myrtle Wyckoff L / M station.
