Capacity

The Hollywood House allows up to 150 people, at full capacity, if you rent both the upstairs and the kitchen. But, that's a tight fit. We find it's a lot more comfortable for your guests with 100 or less. 

The approximate size of main hall is 50’ x 23’.

The tables are 96" x 30".

Security Deposit

A security deposit of $175 for rentals is required. Following your rental, the House will be checked by the HCA rental agent to insure it was cleaned and returned to a state that it can be rented again. Deposits are returned, within 7-10 business days, to the credit card used to make the deposit.

Cancellation Policy

There is a $10 cancellation fee for security deposits and $15 for rental fees if cancelled more than three (3) days (72 hours) before the rental day and time. If the rental is cancelled less than three (3) days (72 hours) before the rental day and time, the cancellation fee is 50% of the security deposit.

Seeing the House / Getting Keys

Once you pay the security deposit, we'll send you a confirmation with additional information. In that email it states that we will contact the renter a week prior to their event to set up a time to meet at the house, sign the contract, hand off the key and make final payment, if need be.

If you need to see the House before you choose to rent it, please complete the Contact Us form and request a walk-through. We are volunteers and will work with you to find a mutually-beneficial time to meet and let you see the Hollywood House.

Alcohol

The HCA does NOT have a license for alcohol service and does not allow selling of alcohol on its premises. Renters are allowed to bring in alcohol as long as it is done so within the constraints of the local and state laws. If you wish to sell alcohol to your guests, please contact the Village of Brookfield to obtain the proper licenses.

COVID Information

Events can take place for a variety of reasons that make use of our indoor facilities and outdoor grounds. Regardless of the function being held, any in-person event necessarily carries a certain level of risk, HCA asks that everyone using the facility takes reasonable efforts to maintain the safety of all in attendance during their event. Prior to any new event, the HCA complies with recommended CDC cleaning protocols before and after each event for the health and safety of all our guests. Keep in mind, it is possible that an event may take place prior to another event within 24 hours, as such, the HCA will notify the renters prior to this happening. The renters may continue to host their event at their own discretion. There shall not be any explicit or implicit expectation for anyone to attend an event if for any reason they are uncomfortable or do not wish to attend.
