Mitrani Hall

Following a generous gift from Marco and Louise Mitrani in 1981 to fund acoustical improvements, the large auditorium of Haas Center was named Mitrani Hall. Renovated in 1996, the auditorium now seats 1,858 people in modern ergonomic theatre seats. Further renovations in 2008, made vast improvements in Haas Center for the Arts classroom, studio, and shop facilities for the Music, Theatre, and Dance department, as well as a more versatile gallery space for the Art Department. Most recently, in January of 2018, Mitrani Hall’s sound system was completely renovated and up-dated to be a state-of-the-art line array system with all equipment up to industry standard.

Mitrani Hall is now one of the largest and finest indoor auditoriums in Northeast Pennsylvania enabling university students as well as the surrounding communities to experience the best the arts have to offer. The stage is home to many campus performance groups, academic and lecture presentations, the Arts in Bloom Series.
