Auburn Ave. Theater Status Update

auburn ave theaterAs of February 8, 2022:  In July 2021, a downtown fire completely destroyed the apartment building and several businesses just south of the Auburn Avenue Theater. That building was demolished in December 2021 and at the end of December 2021, the Auburn Avenue Theater was "red tagged," a code enforcement term that means we are unable to occupy the building. A structural engineer evaluated the Auburn Avenue Theater on January 4, 2022. The opinion from the structural assessment notes there are multiple building elements that pose a potential risk if not addressed. Given this information, the Auburn Avenue Theater will remain closed and all scheduled performances for the remainder of the performing arts season (through August 2022) will be either moved or cancelled. Patrons that have tickets for performances during that timeframe will be contacted separately for information about specific performances.

Auburn's New Arts & Culture Center

The City of Auburn purchased Auburn's Historic Post Office located at 100 Auburn Avenue in August 2016 to transform it into an Arts & Culture Center. The City gathered community input regarding use of the building and has worked diligently over the last several years to raise over $900,000 in grant funds to help renovate the building. Window restoration was completed in the Fall of 2018, interior demolition began in 2019, major abatement took place in 2020, and interior remodeling started in December 2021.
