The Coolidge Theatre, a black box style space, is the perfect venue for anything you can imagine. Bands, plays, musicals, wedding receptions, proms, conventions, dance classes; all of them have been accommodated by this room. The most unique feature of our theatre is that it is completely customizable. Seating, stage, curtains, and entrances can all be adjusted to the needs of our guests. The Coolidge Theatre can comfortably accommodate up to 200 people.
Our Lobby boasts beautiful hardwood floors and the same flexibility as the Coolidge Theatre. Everything can be moved to suit the situation. The Lobby is excellent for smaller acoustic artists and ensembles who want little to no sound reinforcement. This space can easily be manipulated to create a coffee-house, relaxed atmosphere for its occupants through its versatile lighting options and seating arrangements. The Lobby is also ideal for small receptions and group gatherings of up to 150 people.
The Grand Community Room is not only airy and spacious, but also overlooks the beautiy of Wellsboro's gas-lit Main Street. If you're searching for a place to hold a wedding ceremony or reception, the Grand Community Room is a solid choice. With a maximum occupancy of 100, the space can be set up however you request. It also stands to mention that in the evening hours, the sun comes in through the windows, transforming the room into a lovely golden pool of color, adding elements of class and magic to any event.
In addition to the Grand Community Room, the Deane Center provides two smaller Community Rooms. Both can easily be prepared to meet the needs of your group. The smaller Community rooms are used weekly for different fitness classes and rehearsals, and booked regularly for events like baby showers or medium-sized company meetings. Both rooms comfortably accommodate up to 50 people.

Can accomodate up to 100 depending on seating.
The Board Room is a professional room that is ready for your small business meeting. The conference table seats 10-12 and the original brick wall provides a creative yet structured atmosphere. Space has wi-fi and internet access with a large monitor available for distance meetings.
