About Second Act

Second Act Marketplace and Events is a neighborhood public space. Our Events venue showcases events, which is also available for rent.

Our History


The mission of Second Act’s marketplace is to bring small businesses to the forefront through a shared space.

Marketplace Closed on August 28

It is with a mix of emotions that we want to let you know we will be closing Second Act Marketplace.  Since recasting the Red Vic movie house in 2014 as a market and events space, we have had the great privilege of working with a unique and inspiring group of talented, creative food crafters and performers. We were thrilled for the opportunity to offer work space to these artisans and artists and enjoyed forging relationships with the customers these businesses attracted.  However, a slew of changes among our tenants have indicated that it was time for us to make a change as well.  On August 28th, we will be closing down Second Act Marketplace and offering it up for lease.

Please note, Second Act Events Space will remain open and has daily events.
