The Shelter was actually featured in the film 8 Mile, starring homegrown rap icon Eminem. The Shelter was one of the places his character begins to develop, and so has special significance for those who have seen the movie. A lot of underground rap and different kinds of music are held here. Great bands perform here on a regular basis.
The Shelter is a unique basement venue that#25;s built underneath St. Andrew#25;s Hall. It#25;s as unpretentious as it comes: The stage is at floor level, meaning the performers are never looking down on their audience. It#25;s very small and intimate, offering patrons a unique no frills experience. It#25;s very bare, and it#25;s not recommended you come dressed up looking your best.
