Rental Inquires

UNDER St Marks is available to rent for performances, rehearsals, screenings, film shoots, and classes. Our rentals are relatively affordable and give you the freedom to do your thing when and how you want to do it. We don’t need anything from you but money and your commitment to do your show/use the space. And you don’t need any more approval from us than dates and times! If you’re doing a ticketed performance, you keep all your box office revenue. If the show does well, a rental can be more lucrative than a co-production. Our rental rates are available at the bottom of this page.

Apart from the space itself, we provide our performance rentals with ticketing services including listing on our site. We can also provide staffing for tech and/or front of house/box office for $75 per person per performance. Our venue is equipped to live stream, giving you access to a world-wide audience.

The Rental Process

Because New York City’s venues vary widely, we highly recommend that you make an appointment to view the venue to make sure it’s right for your project. Spacing viewings can be scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3pm to 6pm here. Viewings will be scheduled around rehearsals and other bookings.

After seeing the venue or if you are already familiar with our space and if you already have a date or dates in mind, you can request a space reservation here. If you aren’t sure of when you want to do your show, you can submit a rental inquiry.

A member of our staff will contact you to confirm your rental details and answer any questions.

Once your date(s) have been agreed on, you will receive a contract and invoice. Half of the space fee is due at contract signing. The rest of the space fee and any incidentals (including fireguard, projector rental, rehearsals, staffing, etc.) may be paid on a payment plan, all due before your first performance. Information on our rates in available below. We accept checks, cash, credit cards, and money orders.

And you’re all set with your rental!
