At 743 seats, this space, owned and operated by Pace University, is the largest venue in downtown Manhattan. From the Tribeca Film Festival to presidential debates, the Schimmel Center makes the most of its flexability and modernity. Visiting acts may rent out the space, like London’s Globe Theatre did in 2009, but they’ll have to vie for space with Inside the Actor’s Studio. James Lipton’s popular interview series has been filming here since 2005.
