Belle Mehus Auditorium

Belle Mehus Auditorium
The historic Belle Mehus Auditorium, located in downtown Bismarck, is a treasured jewel within the community. Hosting its first show January 1914, this 452 seat theater has been part of the culture of the area for Italian operettas to film screening and from classical music to modern ballet. A 966 square foot stage and a 315 square foot orchestra pit bring performances to life as patrons enjoy seating on the main level, in the balcony or in one of the 24 box seats. There is also a Conductor’s room perfect for small receptions before any performance. (The Belle Mehus Auditorium is separate from the Bismarck Event Center, but managed by the same team.)
