Rent Vinegar Hill Theatre

Light House Studio has taken advantage of a unique opportunity to put down deep roots in a Charlottesville landmark while keeping Vinegar Hill Theatre alive. Forty years ago a pair of movie lovers converted a motorcycle showroom into a 183-seat theatre. For 37 years Vinegar Hill Theatre served as a singular venue for screening independent and international films and a community gathering spot for art lovers. But after a long battle with the big movie chains, Vinegar Hill closed its doors for good in 2013.

In June of 2016 Light House reopened Vinegar Hill as a film center in this highly-visible and convenient location on the downtown mall, which serves as a movie lot for our young filmmakers. In addition to serving more than 1,000 children each year, the theatre also benefits our many (50+) nonprofit partners. Vinegar Hill once again screens independent and documentary films.

In addition to hosting our own screenings, we also rent the theatre to nonprofits, businesses, and private parties. Vinegar Hill Theatre is ideal for private and corporate parties, meetings, screenings, rehearsals, and fundraisers.
