With its grand, Italian Renaissance Revival Architecture, six Corinthian columns and magnificent setting along the Concord River, the Lowell Memorial Auditorium is certain to create a striking first impression. The building was designed by the firm Blackall, Clapp and Whittemore and now occupies 30,000 square feet of its original 100,000 square foot lot. Flexible in its capacity to hold events from Broadway shows to trade shows, the Lowell Memorial Auditorium houses a 2,800 seat main hall, 380 seat Liberty Hall (Merrimack Repertory Theatre) and spacious Hall of Flags. The Veterans wing contains three function rooms, two with capacities of 50, and a third with a capacity of 200. When built, great pains were taken to ensure perfect acoustic sound, a trait the Lowell Memorial Auditorium has come to be renowned for.
