About The Franco Center

The Franco Center is as versatile as it is beautiful. It features two large rooms, each serving multiple functions and possessing its own individual charms. Despite its history as a former Catholic Church, it is now a non-denominational facility. Upstairs is our Performance Hall, an elegant room with restored chandeliers, magnificent stained glass windows, world-class acoustics that must be experienced to be fully appreciated, and comfortable seating for 428 patrons with not a bad seat in the house. Downstairs is our Heritage Hall, which sports an extensive bar as well as a large kitchen for catered events. It does double-duty as a nightclub for live music and comedy and as a banquet hall for wedding receptions, corporate meetings, awards ceremonies and other events such as French classes and our monthly La Rencontre luncheon. Decked out in tables and chairs, it can hold up to 275 patrons — and nearly 500 for standing-room only events.
