Mather Auditorium

The Mather Elementary School was built in 1921 which included a classic auditorium with a raised stage and theater style seating.  In 2001/2002 the Mather Auditorium was completely renovated and state of the art sound and lighting were introduced.  With over 700 seats, and a sixty foot screen, the auditorium will provide the perfect setting for our feature presentations. No food or drinks are allowed in the auditorium- Thanks!
