Shannon Film Albany

Shannon Licygiewicz was promoted to General Manager at the Albany Capital Center, one of the capital region's NYS Qualified Production Facilities, during the summer of 2021.  However, Shannon has been there as Director of Sales for the last 6 years.  With her more than 16 years of experience in the convention center and production world, she is thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead the Albany Capital Center team into the future.  While Shannon loved her role in sales, she also has a strong passion for managing your project and operations.  Shannon will continue to bring a lot of enthusiasm and leadership to the Albany Capital Center.  Her "hit the ground running" approach has followed her throughout her career with ASM and it is the only way she knows how to work! 

The Times Union Center and Albany Capital Center are both NYS Qualified Production Facilities, with the Times Union Center being one of the top qualified multi-purpose production facilities in the Northeast. 

You will be able to keep your cast and crew comfortable and safe by offering plenty of space for social distancing, utilizing your private production offices, kitchen, catering, hair/makeup and wardrobe rooms.  The Times Union Center and the Albany Capital Center are fully-air conditioned, have loading docks (TUC has one large elephant door that allows truck access to floor), high speed internet connections, Wi-Fi, parking for oversized vehicles and many other amenities.  All of the buildings’ specifications are listed below

The Times Union Center and the Albany Capital Center continue to comply with CDC and Government guidelines and they are enhancing their already stringent standards.  Their staff is following ASM Global cleaning best practices, including additional and frequent sanitizing of high touch point areas and newly installed hand sanitizing stations. 

Both facilities pride themselves on their convenient location in downtown Albany, allowing our clients easy access to all major highways, recommending preferred vendors and the service/flexibility that comes along with their entire team.  They will take your project from “the boards” to the “big screen”.
