The Rochester Auditorium Center in Neighborhood of the Arts is a historic building comprised of the Auditorium Theater and the attached Masonic Temple Complex. The Auditorium Theater is beautifully preserved and hosts a variety of Broadway plays, concerts, etc. The Masonic Temple is in use as office space for local businesses, and also has a variety of meeting rooms, auditoriums, and other types of space available for rent to the public. See photo (right) for a view of the large, very gothic-looking auditorium that is housed within the Temple complex. Makes you wonder about what secret Masonic rituals might have taken place here...

The entire complex is a Rochester gem, a well-preserved part of our past with lots of architectural detail that needs to be preserved. Luckily the space is proving useful and hopefully it will be maintained for many years to come. if you go to a show at the main Auditorium Theater, remember to look for the squirrels in the ceiling (hint, look closely at the plaster details).
