The ZACC Show Room is located in the heart of downtown Missoula in the beautiful, historic Studebaker Building, and can house a maximum of 175 seated and 350 standing. Adjacent to the Show Room is the Blackfoot Gallery & Lounge, which can be booked in addition to the theatre for events requiring extra, separate space.
The name of our event center harkens back to the building's original use as an automobile garage and showroom. The Studebaker Building is listed on the National Historic Registry, and served a growing automobile industry from the 1920s through the 1950s, when its owner Louis Nybo sold and repaired Studebakers here -- the then vehicle of choice for Missoula's police force.
SHOW ROOM AMENITIES
Our event center can handle up to 350 standing, or 175 seated, dependent on room arrangement. It boasts 175 chairs, 20 banquet tables, 10 cocktail tables (which adjust in height), an adjustable theatre lighting system, sound equipment, backdrop and blackout curtains, a removable stage, and a backstage area with access to our kitchen and upstairs bathrooms.
The Show Room is available to rent for private events, and for festival events requiring passes.
Performances in the Show Room need to be booked by the ZACC. To book a show in the ZACC Show Room, please go to Book a Show.
