“It’s not the size that counts…it’s the quality of the performance.”


We offer a classy venue for seating of 50 for special performances or a professional meeting.  Stage, sound and lighting provide a venue like no other in Central New York.  Both the Piccolo Cafe and Canal Side Inn offer fine dining before your meeting or performance.  The arts are alive and well in Canal Place.  Please consider us for your next performance!

For all of our events please use our easy on-line payment button below for each event to guarantee your reservations.   Seating for all events is limited at 50.  We also take reservations and payment via Visa, MC, Amex and Discover at the Inn 315-823-0208.

Black Box Theatre Gift Certificates also available for any amount.


No Scheduled Events At This Time….

The theatre had it’s last show in May of 2016, and will be closed until ownership changes of the building.



  • All cell phones off during performances.
  • No alcohol is to be brought in for any performance – the theatre sells beer by the bottle or wine by the glass.
  • The 30/15 rule!  Whether you are on the list to attend a performance, you must be in attendance 15 minutes before show time, or we reserve the right to give your seat to the next person in line.  Doors open 30 minutes before a performance.  We cannot guarantee prime seating after that point, no matter what the performance is.  All seating is general admission.
  • If you are going to be late, you must call 315-823-0208 to let us know ahead of time, up until 15 minutes before show time.
  • Upon exiting, you may use the stairwell by the elevator for exit (alarm is off during performances), and please limit only 6 bodies to the elevator at a time.  Yeah, it’s a strange rule, but the computer-controlled elevator shuts down when it senses too much weight, it’s a safety thing…get over it!

Contact Richard or David at the inn at 315-823-0208 10-5 daily for more information.
