What dates are available?
Please contact us to check availability. Be sure to note any flexibility with your event date(s).
What would the rental fee be for my event?
SRS daily rental rates range from $8000 to $12,000, depending on the day of the week and the date (premium holidays may be higher). Peak season months are May, June, September and October, and weekend rates are higher than for weekdays, so flexibility with your dates can help your budget. Also ask about promotional or multiple-day discounts where available. Please contact us with more details to request a custom quote for your event.
Is it possible to rent only a portion of the space?
SRS books no more than one event per day to ensure the best experience for every client. While you may section off portions of the space as per the needs of your event, the fee reflects rental of the entire venue. Thus, SRS may not be ideal for smaller events, but please contact us to discuss your options.
What is the rental fee for a photo or video shoot?
SRS will rent by the hour to photographers and filmmakers. Contact us for a customized quote based on the complexity, size, space requirements and length of your shoot.
How do I reserve the space for my event?
A deposit of 50% of the rental fee is necessary to reserve a date. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the event. Failure to pay the balance due 30 days prior to the event date will constitute a cancellation. If the booking takes place within 30 days of the event date, the rental fee is due in full at the contract signing. The security deposit, due at the time of booking, will be refunded within 30 days of the end of the event, less any damages. Proof of insurance is also due no later than 30 day prior to the event date.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Sound River Studios accepts certified and personal checks, money orders, wire transfers, and all major credit cards. There is a 3% service fee for credit cards.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancel more than 90 days prior to your scheduled event, and you will receive your deposit back less a $2500 non-refundable booking fee. Cancel within 90 days of the event, and you forfeit your rental fee deposit. Cancel within 30 days of the event, and you forfeit your rental fee. The security deposit will be fully refunded regardless of the cancellation date. The date of the event may be changed to another available date, though a rebooking fee of $500 will be charged in addition to any difference in venue rental fee.
Do I need to provide my own insurance?
SRS requires you to provide a certificate of insurance that covers you and your vendors. (Note that your caterer may be able to insure certain vendors through their policy.) We require $2M general aggregate / $1M per occurrence including property damage. Your policy should include Host Liquor Liability if you are serving alcohol. Single-day policies for special events typically cost $150-$250 depending on the size and complexity of the event.
See our list of vendors to purchase insurance not provided by your caterer. SRS requires copies of all insurance policies no later than 30 days prior to your event.
