Coming Soon - Media Hub

This glass-enclosed studio in the heart of the LIU Brooklyn campus will be a high-tech entertainment production environment that rivals many Hollywood studios. The new space will be dedicated primarily to teaching acting for TV and film, news, talk, and magazine-style production. It will house a contemporary set and a green screen with state-of-the-art lighting systems and robotic cameras.

Coming Soon - The Paramount Theater

The Paramount Theater is currently undergoing renovation and rejuvenation that will restore the historic theater to its former glory and provide exciting new services to the community and entertainment industry. The LIU Paramount will have capacity for 3,500 guests and create the opportunities for students to gain hands-on industry experience across multiple disciplines, including arts management, media arts, performing arts, marketing, and more. In addition, the LIU Paramount will host private programs and offer free or discounted tickets to students to select events, and a portion of all ticket sales will be provided to support student scholarships.
