Easy entrance from Hwy #1, plenty of parking. Mainly used for events, shows, and attractions. I have attended many over the years. Restroom and concession spaces, also very nice outside landscaped space.

Recent took our students there for a field trip. I was impressed that the auditorium is still well cared for and clean. Not many venue are hosted there as many prefer the direct downtown area. War Memorial is a classic that still provides a great space for hosting any performance.

Building is tired needs a remodeling project. Parking was suppose to be free but there was a $6.00 a car charge. Lines were very long to park. While the do have handicap help its a problem to get to the show room floor due to stairs.

Thank you for pointing out that we are in need of a remodeling project as that is just what is going on right now. The first phase of our remodeling project is a rebuild of a new seating structure. There will be more remodeling improvements to come. We have handicap access to the left as you enter through the main doors and it is a ramp that goes directly to the floor. There is also another ramp in front of the building. I am sorry that someone did not point this out to you.

I Love this place! The historic War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, just North of Broward Boulevard on Federal Highway, So easy to get to, easy parking and/or valet and what a great and varied event filled Auditorium. A Jewel in the crown the 1950s historical Auditorium! Nestled in the unlikely areas between gorgeous Rio Vista, Lake Ridge, and some of Fort Lauderdale's loveliest neighborhoods, an eclectic event emporium of all time! Set back past the beautiful long green lawn, canopied trees, in the City but not in the crowd. The outstanding offerings rum the gamut from Dance and Ballet, orchid shows, cats, show, modern and Motown performers to Car Shows, Guns Shows, arts and crafts, nautical festivals, free tree give-aways in the City and so much more, I can't even remember all the varied events. Oh! Yes, can't forget the Gold Coast All Girls Roller Derby. Local art, traveling acts, and MMA. Check their Calendar! Check their Facebook page. You never know what maybe coming up or going on - could be any night of the week too. Usually very reasonable night out, with concessions or the Food Trucks, places to walk to for a nice bite and the shortest drive to gourmet dining on incredible world class Las Olas Boulevard, the City of Fort Lauderdale's Memorial to our Veterans of War, they would approve, something for EVERY taste. Day time and night time events, right next to Holiday Park, a sports park, tennis center, raquet ball, yoga, jogging, baseball and soccer fields. Bring the children! A wonderful family day! A beautiful night out. Casual to glamour, easily reached by buses, or a quick walk from nearby fine hotels. A trip to the Fort simply must included a outing to the War Memorial Auditorium and a fun, fine meal afterward, before or in between! We live here, we love it. We walk over. Its just super to have it right there and we find ourselves there all the time. There's a good bike path to the Memorial and a beautiful ride through the grounds and into connecting Holiday Park, user Friendly! Something for everyone in a unique tropical setting all with due grace and charm of 1950s Fort Lauderdale!

We are so happy that you love our auditorium as much as we do! Thank you very much for the outstanding review! We appreciate you for being our voice and please keep spreading the word. We are in the middle of our first face-lift; which is replacing the accordion seats with new ones. There are more improvements to come and we look forward to you returning to us time and time again.
