altMcFarlin Auditorium at Southern Methodist University in Dallas opened in 1926 to address the school’s need for a chapel that could accommodate the entire student body.

The building’s use has since evolved, and while it remains a venue for school-related and community activities, it has also hosted a variety of performances, productions, and speakers. Among them have been the American Ballet Theatre, Luciano Pavrotti, Martin Luther King Jr., and Yo-Yo Ma.
