Small and expensive and not in an intimate upscale way. Black Rock could serve it's community better. This isn't Potomac or Bethesda, they need to be more open and accessible.

I have seen several performances in the theatre, from world-famous acts to my children's elementary school drama produtions. This is a wonderfully intimate theatre, with great acoustics and I recommend it unconditionally. But there is much more to the center than that, there is an...More

The show was great...very funny. The venue still needs a little improvement. It's an OK setup..tables and a stage. They could set up a little better food/drink area, but it's ok. You can get drinks and a few snacks. Do not plan to eat dinner...More

Attended gallery showings, church services, banquets and community activities here. Lovely place. Well kept. Could use a slight bit of updating in the main theatre - being used for multiple events it's showing a bit of wear. Overall, it's classy for a private event, and...More

BlackRock has something for everyone -- tons of classes and summer concerts, but also free exhibits by local artists! Even if you're just passing by, it can't hurt to walk in and see what's there.
