Auditorio Telmex

Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico

The innovative flexibility and full stagehouse at this busy 333,000 square foot multipurpose auditorium provide rapid turnaround for touring shows and local programming. The room can host audiences of any size due to unique moving sidewalls, which reduce the volume of the auditorium and seat count while maintaining the same level of intimacy. The auditorium easily adjusts to accommodate between 2,658 and 8,712 people by motorized balcony seating towers, which track into the auditorium to adjust the fan shape of the theatre from 100 degrees to 80 degrees.
