Bringing a diverse range of programming to the Southern DeKalb County community, the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts and Community Center is a state-of-the art, 500 seat theater located in the historic Candler Road district. This 40,000 square feet Performing Arts and Community Center also boasts a two-story lobby that serves as a separate event space complete with concessions.  The 500-seat auditorium/theater contains a control room, lighting, sound, and acoustical wall treatments. Also included is a separate Black Box theater with curtained walls and hardwood floors to accommodate various types of events and performances. A multi-purpose community room, classrooms, administrative offices and dressing rooms are also a part of this wonderful center.

Our goal is to ensure that your organization has a positive and productive experience with this outstanding municipal facility.  DeKalb has invested more than 17 million dollars to construct the most advanced performing arts theater in the history of our county.  The Center is equipped with digital audio and lighting equipment throughout the entire facility and can accommodate a variety of performances including musicals, plays, ballets, weddings, and concerts.

The Center has a wide variety of rooms available for your event.  Come visit our 500 seat main theater, the 100 seat “black box” secondary theater, or the outstanding “open-view” terrace of the 200 seat-style reception lobby configuration.
