LUMBERYARD Center for Film and Performing Arts

One of the nation’s leading contemporary arts institutions is located in Catskill, NY on the shore of the Hudson River.

Performing Arts

LUMBERYARD, formerly known as the American Dance Institute, is a leading-edge arts center offering residencies to performance artists, as well as events and performances that are open to the public. Located in Catskill, NY, LUMBERYARD is the first place in the U.S. designed to allow artists to explore their creation, to test, experiment and bring their vision to life immediately before premiere. 

The LUMBERYARD contemporary performing arts center hosts technical residences for performance artists who need access to a theater, studio, event space, production staff, and more to bring their vision to life. The benefit of the center is that artists-in-residence can live, eat, even do their laundry, right at the center. 

Visitors throughout the year can expect to see mind-bending and thought-provoking performances, whether a film, dance performance, or performing arts debut. Check the events calendar for a list of performing arts experiences going on in Greene County. 

Qualified Film Production

In addition to its performing arts facilities, LUMBERYARD is a Qualified Film Production (QFP) facility, which allows film production companies to utilize the center’s spaces for filming and post production. Most recently, John Krasinski’s directorial debut A Quiet Place was filmed in the area. Lumberyard Studios features a purpose-built sound stage offering 12,000 square feet of production space, state-of-the-art acoustics, and on-site accommodations just two hours from Midtown Manhattan.
