The Basile Theater is equipped with a complete lighting and sound system operable from a projection booth with backstage communication. Other in-house equipment includes an on-stage retractable screen, Blu-ray player and assisted listening devices. A podium and a 9-foot Steinway grand piano are also available for use.
