Edward W. Powers Auditorium

Edward W. Powers Auditorium opened in 1931 as the Warner Theatre, built in honor of the late Sam Warner one of the Warner Brothers who started their movie empire in Youngstown. Today, Edward W. Powers Auditorium is a 2300 seat theater with a stage equipped to host many of today’s touring performances as well as local productions. The Grand Lobby and Spanish Room, both part of the original 1931 building, provide a grand historical location for many events.

Ford Family Recital Hall

The Ford Family Recital Hall and the Eleanor Beecher Flad Pavilion built in 2006 feature a modern recital hall seating 600 guests and a glass lobby space that provides a modern contrast to the connected 1931 Grand Lobby.
