About Us:

McFarlin Memorial Auditorium is a proscenium style theatre located on the campus of Southern Methodist University. The venue seats 2,386 on three levels. The building is the third oldest on SMU's campus and has hosted a number of notable acts.

Opened in 1926 to fulfill the University's pressing need for a chapel that could accommodate the entire student body, the Auditorium has evolved over time and continues to serve the University in the manner envisioned by SMU President Charles Selecman as "a place where we can have our friends from the community and elsewhere gather together on great occasions."

Recent projects include a completely new paint job and the addition on over 140 new house lights of the theater, the installation of a new sound system, renovation of the second floor lobby, now called the Mezzanine, and remodeling of the dressing rooms.
