McFarlin Memorial Auditorium
An amazing array of artists and speakers visit this auditorium to inform and delight Dallas audiences with their talents and knowledge. Originally built in 1926, McFarlin was initially constructed so that Southern Methodist University would have a chapel and auditorium large enough to hold the entire student body. Since that time, the auditorium has increasingly been used as an entertainment venue. Past speakers and performers include Elton John, Bob Hope, Will Rogers, Jr. Helen Hayes, The Kronos Quartet, Marvin Hamlisch, William F. Buckley and many others. The auditorium seats 2,398. You can park at the southeast corner of the building. However, you should arrive early, carpool or plan to walk a bit from surrounding street parking spots or other campus lots.
