The Griffin Auditorium
The Griffin Auditorium is a unique venue for live performance. Its design features two prosceniums, a balcony front made of plywood panels, and ceilings topped with wood panels. These panels are acoustically engineered to deliver a clear, full sound to the auditorium. The architecture is reminiscent of a miniature opera house.
The Griffin Auditorium is located at 234 E Taylor St, Griffin, GA 30224. It is a venue for live performances of all genres. If you are a fan of a particular genre, you can sign up for Songkick to be notified when concerts are held at the venue.
The Griffin area has a thriving arts community. A group called the Griffin Area Arts Alliance has helped restore the 1,100-seat Griffin Auditorium. The organization hosts many local performing groups and events, including the yearly four-concert series of the Griffin Community Concert Association. The Griffin Ballet Theatre produces an annual production of "The Nutcracker" and other performances throughout the year.
