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

Central location, near good restaurants. Small bathrooms for the amount of people attending a graduation.

I went to a Gala Dinner at the Memorial Auditorium recently and was impressed by the venue. It was quite nostalgic and had charm. The acoustics were quite good given the age of the venue. It is amazing to see the posters of the various acts that have performed over the decades.
