City of Lynn

Opened in 1948, the City of Lynn’s Memorial Auditorium was built as a state of the art entertainment facility.  The venue has hosted acts such as The Beach Boys, Billy Preston, Delaney & Bonnie, Roy Orbison, Fats Domino, Victor Borge, The Coasters, The Drifters, Frank Sinatra Jr, the New Kids on the Block, Jay Leno and the Boston Ballet.

Unfortunately in the mid to late 1970’s the venue saw less and less use and was eventually only used for sporadic graduations and dance recitals.  However, in 2002, the groundbreaking of the rehabilitation of this grand venue began. Since that time, under the leadership of James Marsh and Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy, the auditorium was totally refurbished and renovated.  From state of the art lighting and sound systems, to new curtains, seats, rigging, loading docks and lifts, the auditorium has jumped back onto the scene as the oldest yet newest premier entertainment venue on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

Kicking off the restoration, Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops played a blue ribbon cutting performance on October 1, 2006.  This event was followed by performances by Peter Paul & Mary, Foreigner and many, many others.  The Lynn Auditorium is now on par with other Boston based entertainment venues and is steadily gaining more and more momentum. Check out for rental information and our events listings as we will be adding more shows every month!
