You can become part of the Auditorium Theatre’s legacy. Engrave your name on one of this National Historic Landmark’s common spaces or architectural elements. Share your memories, enshrine your own legacy, or commemorate your love of the arts so that future generations will know that the Auditorium Theatre was fortunate to have such kind and generous friends.

The Memory Wall

The space on the North Lobby Wall of the theater (surrounding the bust of Bea Spachner, who headed the Auditorium’s restoration in 1967, and right behind the stairs that go down to the Adler Room) will now be a “Memory Wall” of honor. In this location, the Auditorium Theatre’s closest friends will have the opportunity to share their favorite memories of the theater throughout the years. They simply tell us what their best memory is, and it will hang on a plaque in our lobby in perpetuity. This is a unique opportunity to have permanent recognition in a National Historic Landmark.


This is your chance to take a seat in history! Your generous gift will allow you to affix a commemorative plaque or nameplate to one of the Auditorium Theatre’s seats or box chairs. Patrons for the next 125 years will know what an important role you played in the Auditorium Theatre’s history.

Additional Naming Locations

Many of the architectural structures and common spaces throughout the historic Auditorium Theatre need restoration or refurbishment. Your gift to these areas will allow us to complete the vital preservation work that will ensure they endure for many years to come. You will be recognized in perpetuity for your kindness by having one of these crucial areas bear your name.
