The Gallery is located on the upper floor of the building, along with several offices for lease and attic storage for sets and production prop. Originally this level was an expansive attic space and could only be accessed by climbing a ladder from the main floor. The broad staircase in the Green Room and an elevator provide access today. Just outside the gallery is a light-filled space with an exhibit of photographs of the region's cultural and mining history. At times used for receptions, it's a wonderful compliment to the gallery.
