The City Auditorium
The Concord City Auditorium is a beautiful historic theater owned and held in trust by the City of Concord. The auditorium was built on the western side of City Hall in 1904, and recently restored with volunteer community support.
The theater house seats between 835 and 841, depending on the configuration of the orchestra seats. The orchestra has seating for 524 to 535 guests, including 9 wheelchair locations. There are 247 seats in the front balcony and 64 second balcony seats. The space is ADA accessible, including the restrooms. The gilded proscenium arch surrounds the 25-foot by 25-foot stage performance area. There is a small orchestra pit. Backstage facilities include nine dressing rooms and three restrooms.
Intermission hospitality is offered in the reception lobby. Additionally, this space is available to rent for meetings and receptions. The lobby's capacity is 65 seated guests and 140 standing guests. Recent users include rotary clubs, historical societies, political events, and business and civic organizations. The lobby is rented out in four-hour blocks.
The space has no kitchen facilities but users may bring in refreshments to serve.
That is right.....after being closed for many, many months during COVID, the Concord City Auditorium is reopening in August and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back for performances and shows!
