The SVA Theatre sits in the heart of Chelsea on West 23rd Street. Since opening its doors in 2009, SVA Theatre has proved to be an invaluable resource for the College—hosting numerous lectures, art performances, presentations, and of course, film screenings. The theater is also used by the community at large, hosting numerous public and private events throughout the year.

The theater was redesigned and refurbished by celebrated designer and acting chairman of SVA, Milton Glaser, along with a team of architects and artists. It offers two theaters, the Silas and Beatrice, seating 479 and 266 respectively. One of the most notable features of the theater is Milton Glaser’s kinetic sculpture, which sits atop the marquee and comes to life every hour on the hour.
