Newly opened in Brooklyn, NYC, the 1896 shooting location and film/photo stage offers a unique turn-of-the-century complex of warehouses and outdoor venues, as well as the scope and conveniences to execute any imaginable set.
The 1896 features eight unique locations under three roofs and 8,000 square feet of building space. The two main brick warehouses feature 6,000 square feet of sky-lit space, 30-foot steel A-framed ceilings, as well as wide-ranging and revolving century-old textured walls throughout.
Joining the main stages, a 2,000 square foot brick-lined courtyard and drive features an overlooking balcony, four fire escapes and two massive roofs complete with water towers, smokestack and a beautiful view of Manhattan.
Other locations such as a richly textured freight elevator, several stairwells, hallways, a modern loft apartment and numerous artist studios are filtered throughout the property.
The 1896 has a growing 300+ piece prop collection as well as its own line of architecturally themed props, Primate Props, coming out in 2010. A newly built corner Cyc adds to an already abundant variety of textured walls. Modern shooting amenities abound, with full hair and make-up rooms and a green room for clients. All stages are fully powered and heated.
