Step into another world at The Civic​, Auditorium.

Built in 1929 as an atmospheric theatre, the Auditorium gives a real sense of occasion to any event. 

Seating up to 2,378 people, the opulent and lavishly decorated auditorium features dramatic pillars, spires and minarets.

The magic of The Civic Auditorium is the spectacular starry ceiling that replicates an Auckland night sky in April 1929 when work on the theatre began. It is under this starry night with twinkling lights and shooting stars that your guests will be amazed by. 

The Auditorium combines comfort and a stunning setting, with on-site technical facilities to build drama and impact in what is one of the world's last remaining, and the Southern Hemisphere's only atmospheric theatre. 

The stage of The Civic Auditorium offers an exclusive setting for hosting premium banquet and cocktail functions. With the opportunity to experience the incredible theatre from a totally unique perspective, guests will feel like the stars of the show.
