Situated along the banks of the San Antonio River in the city’s heart, the historic Municipal Auditorium, with its original facade preserved, has been transformed into a the Tobin Center. This theatrical icon is once again the pride of the River and a shining beacon of creativity, fine art and downtown development. There is no better place — anywhere — to see and hear a live performance.
The Tobin Center features a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose 1,738-seat (2,100-seat with flat-floor configuration) performance hall, a 295-seat studio theater, and an outdoor performance plaza connected to the River Walk with a permanent 30 FT video wall and water taxi portal. The remarkable flexibility of the 1,738-seat H-E-B Performance Hall, with its distinctive “flat-floor” capability, opens the door for performances and events of almost any sort. The acoustics in the Hall can be “tuned” to fit the performance and the physical set-up of the hall, and the sound insulation throughout The Tobin Center also enables simultaneous use of the Performance Hall, the 295-seat Studio Theater and the 600-seat River Walk Plaza.
