The Cell is a fun, flexible and dynamic performing arts space in the heart of Downtown Albuquerque. Home to FUSION Theatre Company and many other activities year-'round, The Cell always has something cooking and should be on your entertainment radar!

Whenever you visit the FUSION Theatre Company home page, be sure to click on the Cell logo at the lower left; it's a sure bet for fun!

Location 700 1st St. NW (downtown, west of Broadway and just south of Lomas). See Location for directions and map. Plenty of free parking on-site.

Historic building (opened in 1912 as a produce cold storage facility) adjacent to the Wool Warehouse. Enter the hand-carved front door and be transported to a magical world of comfort and delight. Come early to enjoy refreshments and our art gallery, or just lounge on our sofas and chat.

When the house opens, climb a few steps to our flexible "black box" performance space. You'll find our open, flexible seating comfortable and the intimacy with the performing area exciting. Separate men's and women's facilities are easily accessible and very appealing.

The Cell can be arranged in a myriad configurations, depending on the needs of the performers; you never know what you'll find when you step into the space! We use the finest lighting and audio equipment to enhance your experience here. The building is fully equipped with a professional scene shop and, as befits an Equity theatre, the best dressing and warm-up space in town.

Patrons and performers alike love The Cell; come see why.

Accessible Fully accessible to patrons with special mobility needs, including a wheelchair ramp bypassing the stairs.

Theatre may be one of the most important activities at The Cell, but many other great things take place here as well. To whit, a partial list:

  • SAG Talks: approximately once per quarter, the Screen Actors Guild hosts special, invititation-only discussions with some of the luminaries of the film industry. Recent guests have included Cate Blanchett, Christopher Walken and Sir Ben Kingsley. While normally only open to SAG union members, by special arrangement, The Cell has been permitted to invite guests—first come, first served—from FUSION Theatre Company's mailing list.
  • "One Night Stand" (variety cabaret): from time to time, local and visiting performers star in a fun, informal, and inexpensive melange of theatre, music, dance, poetry, and other unusual offerings. Be sure to include your name on our mailing list for notices. Next date: Friday, January 5, 2007 at 8PM. Call us at 505.766.9412 for details, or visit The Cell web site.
  • Concerts: The Cell is home to a regular series featuring regional and visiting rock, blues, and jazz musicians. Call us at 505.766.9412 for the schedule, or visit The Cell web site.
Available FUSION Theatre Company, our permanent resident performing group, uses The Cell for approximately half of each year. While other concerts, presentations, talks, and meetings are booked for many of the remaining days and evenings, we welcome your inquiries: your next party or business retreat might receive a standing ovation at The Cell! Call us at 505.766.9412 for further information.
