Kupferberg Center for the Arts (KCA) serves its community through a year-round rental operation that provides facilities and a professional staff for local, national, and international presenters and producers.  We also host professional lectures and symposiums, graduations, church assemblies, and dance school recitals. Three KCA venues available for rental are Colden Auditorium, LeFrak Concert Hall, and Goldstein Theatre.

Colden Auditorium is the largest indoor venue space within the borough of Queens, conveniently located on the campus of Queens College in Flushing, NY. A cultural staple of the region since 1961, the center has welcomed established stars such as Vladimir Feltsman, Chuck Berry, Patti LaBelle, Natalie Cole and Jason Mraz, along with many emerging artists who reflect the multicultural diversity of the borough’s residents.  The handicap-accessible auditorium holds 2,085 seats.  We have a professional box office, free parking and unmatched name recognition in Queens. Renting Colden Auditorium will provide you with a wide array of options to fit the needs of your event.


The coolest and largest indoor venue in Queens, the 2,083-seat Colden Auditorium, is about to become even cooler. After an extensive, one-year HVAC project is completed, along with other theatre enhancements, the Colden Auditorium is scheduled to re-open in July 2024.  To keep updated on the Colden re-opening and to reserve your 2024/2025 dates, please submit your request HERE or contact: Margaret Victor, Venue Sales Director at (718) 570-0927 or Margaret.Victor@qc.cuny.edu
