The auditorium is the most versatile of the spaces in the Asian Centre because of its following features:

  • lighting – fluorescent lights as well as round incandescent lights with a dimmer control box in the main auditorium.
  • built-in 20-foot screen for films and slides
  • no fixed furnishings – the auditorium has no fixed seats, tables or stage. This means that chairs, tables and platform tables can be set-up to meet the needs of the user group*. This room has been the venue for many conferences, exhibitions, lectures, film showings, as well as special performances and fashion shows. The room has parquet flooring.
  • 190 stackable chairs, 18 collapsible 8ft by 2.5ft tables, and lectern are available and included in with rental.
  • visibility and connecting foyer – located on the main floor, the auditorium is very accessible. The large foyer in front of the auditorium provides the ideal area for mingling before and after an event.
  • built-in coat check area
  • dressing room – there is a small adjoining dressing room which may be used by performers. The dressing room is equipped with a well-lit make-up mirror, a toilet, wash basin and shower.
