About the Lowell Memorial Auditorium

The Lowell Memorial Auditorium is located in downtown Lowell, Massachusetts and is dedicated to local veterans of war. The 2,800 seat venue was constructed in 1922 by the architectural firm of Blackall, Clapp & Whittemore. The exterior walls feature the names of famous generals and battles, with monuments to newer wars on the auditorium's small lawn. The public enjoys magnificent Broadway musicals, fun-filled family stage shows, action-packed sporting events and world-class concerts at Lowell’s historic venue. It is also an ideal venue for concerts: family shows, conferences, conventions, trade shows, corporate seminars and much more.In February 2014 a Civil War era flag was discovered in the basement of the facility. The flag had been carried by Solon Perkins, a lieutenant in the 2nd Massachusetts Cavalry Regiment. He was killed in the Battle of Clinton, Louisiana on June 3, 1863. The flag is now hanging in the Hall of Flags at Lowell Memorial Auditorium. It was donated to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium in 1929 by Mary Sawyer Knapp. Spectra, formerly known as Global Spectrum, was recently selected as the facility management and marketing firm for the Lowell Memorial Auditorium.
