This theatre has a large stage and a nice lighting rig. Its capacity was reduced when the entire Stamp Union building was renovated starting in 1999; the last few rows were replaced by a concession stand and spotlight niche. It is equipped for digital projection and sound.

Most Hoff events are open to current UMCP students only. Notable exceptions include performances by Satanic Mechanics, the school’s “Rocky Horror” cast.

The Hoff used to advertise in the local papers. The ads were forced to stop when management of another theatre in the area accused the Hoff of putting them out of business.

The theatre also made the news last year when a student group attempted to screen an adult film, prompting a considerable amount of outrage.

The Hoff is NOT closing altogether…it will still be used for special events and some film screenings (including Satanic Mechanics shows). That’s great as this is a really nice theatre.
