The historic Belle Mehus Auditorium, located in downtown Bismarck, is a treasured jewel within the community. Hosting its first show January 1914, this 452-seat theater has been part of the culture of the area for Italian operettas to film screening, and from classical music to modern ballet. A 966-square foot stage and a 315-square foot orchestra pit bring performances to life as patrons enjoy seating on the main level, in the balcony or in one of the 24 box seats. There is also a Conductor’s room perfect for small receptions before any performance.
