The drive-in door offers easy accessibility handling a 16 ' x 18 ' semi-trailer. Electrical outlets and telephone jacks are in the floor boxes, placed every 40 feet through the Hall. There are also electric wall outlets. A kitchen is available in one area of the Hall. The catwalk above the Hall offers easy access for photographs or hanging decorations.
