Marsee Auditorium

Opened in 1968, the building officially became The Marsee Auditorium in 1982 upon the retirement of the college's second president, Dr. Stuart E. Marsee, under whose guidence the auditorium was built and who advocated expanding the classroom to include the best performing arts the world had to offer.

The Marsee Auditorium is a continental style multi-purpose performance venue with a floor capacity of 1238 seats and a balcony capacity of 810 seats (2048 total seating capacity). The Marsee Auditorium is home to the Center for the Arts and houses the Campus Ticket Office, Center for the Arts Administration Offices, Production Management Offices, Faculty Offices, and a Band Rehearsal Room.

The Marsee Auditorium hosts Main Stage events and the Discovery Film Series for the Center for the Arts, as well as Fine Arts Division Music ensembles and events, ECC Dance Concerts, Communication Studies events, and Film Screenings. The Marsee Auditorium is the central gathering point for many ECC campus wide events, Bi-Annual ECC Faculty and Staff meetings, ECC Commencement, and other campus community events.

The Marsee Auditorium also hosts many guest organizations from our surrounding communities, as well as numerous commencement ceremonies of local high schools and middle schools in the South Bay.
