Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium, Chattanooga, TN

The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium is an historic performance hall in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Built between 1922 and 1924 at a cost of $700,000 and designed by noted architect R. H. Hunt, the theater honors area veterans of World War I. The building, located at 399 McCallie Avenue is about halfway between downtown and the UT Chattanooga campus. It occupies half of the city block bounded by McCallie Avenue, Lindsay Street, Oak Street and Georgia Avenue. The building contains two theaters; the lower one seats 3,866 and the upper one seats 1,012. There is also a small trade show convention hall in the basement that measures 9,600 square feet (890 m2). By the early 1960s, Memorial Auditorium had fallen into disrepair. The building was closed in 1965, and reopened after renovations the following year. It closed again in 1988 for further restoration and modernization. The repairs cost over $7 million, and Memorial Auditorium reopened in 1991.
