Came here for an opening session to a conference and this auditorium is very beautiful on the inside. All around Sacramento you can find beautiful architecture such as this auditorium. I recommend seeing a play or just taking pictures on its great steps.

The tickets show Sacramento Community Center Theater at this address where we say an excellent performance of The Nutcracker. We enjoyed it more than San Francisco ballet as they use more children and a few pets during the performance. It held the attention of our 6 year old for the entire two hours. The intermission allowed for sight of a... More

We had seats in the back row for "Home For The Holidays". From that height you can take in the whole spectacle and the sound comes through quite clear. The top tier is not a place for the disabled as there are no hand rails. We came early and found a parking spot 1/2 a block from the auditorium. There... More

Last year I attended this event at the old Sleep Train Arena. The Memorial Auditorium is very stately on the outside, but rather tired looking inside. The Dress Circle seats I had provided a good view of the stage and the sound was about average. The headliners, Bastille put on a great show. Saint Motel did a great job as... More

This is such a beautiful historic sight! I was here for a dance competition and I feel in love with this place immediately. The grandeur of th auditorium will leave you in awe. I would love to come back here again someday.

This is an architechtual gem in Sacramento that almost met its demise because of eqarthquake safety standaards. Built sometime in the late 20's, this is a magnificant old auditorium that has seen everything from presidential candidates, the Beach Boys to boxing. It you can get inside do so...but just make sure you at least do a drive by to ogle... More

It has history, it has old glamour, it is beautiful. I saw Brandi Carlile and the Avett Brothers on Friday. The sound was awesome and the place is still rocking!!

This auditorium was restored about ten years ago, and I am so thankful that our city had the for-site to fund it! "The Memorial" as we call it, has housed countless concerts, graduations, events of all kinds for something like 60 years. When the gorgeous Alhambra Theater was torn down to make way for a supermarket (a crime) my family... More

My high school chose to have my graduation here. I have lived in Sacramento my whole life, but never actually went inside. This place really is fantastic; great acoustics. Nothing like Arco Arena (Or whatever they call it now) and centrally located in Downtown Sacramento.

There for Les Miz Sat. eve. Friendly staff despite the thousands. Main floor bartender made mixed drink after advising and allowing sniff test of alternatives (didn't touch anything), but too much ice--a fine point, yah. Still I gave $2 tip. Good warnings via flashing lights of show starting. Long before show started, auditorium perhaps 1/2 full, I took cellphone pic... More
