Marin Veterans' Memorial Auditorium

It seats 1,960 and hosts a variety of major events ranging from the Marin Symphony to Marcel Marceau; from the Peking Acrobats to Tommy Tune; from Marin Speakers Series to The Beach Boys. In addition, it's an excellent place for sales meetings, films, and special events.

Exhibit Hall

The Exhibit Hall offers 22,500 square feet on one level and can be partitioned for a variety of uses. With space for 105 booths, the Hall hosts the major trade, consumer, and exhibit shows presented in Marin County.

The Hall also seats up to 1,000 for luncheons and dinners; and with the addition of the portable stage, is available for dinner-dances, corporate parties, and special events.

Showcase Theater

It seats 315 in upholstered comfort, has a 40-foot proscenium, and is fully equipped with theatrical lighting, dimming and studio quality sound system. There is also a light and sound control booth with provisions for slide and 16mm film projection. When the Showcase Theater isn't being a theater, it's a meeting room. Many Marin businesses and organizations schedule meetings and conferences at the Showcase. In either case, no seat is more than 45 feet from the stage.
