Opened in 1991, the Community Cultural Center at NOVA's Annandale Campus is a 66,000 square foot rental facility containing a 525 seat, state-of-the-art theater with satellite downlink and video projection capability; an 11,000 square foot gymnasium/exhibition hall, a welcoming atrium entrance, meeting and training rooms, a two-story art gallery, and a large forum room suitable for lectures, conferences, receptions, hearings, dinner parties, and performances expecting smaller audiences.
