Radio City Music Hall Seating Chart
The venue contains seating for up to 5,960 for spectators, with additional seating available for certain events, bringing the capacity up to more than 6,000. Just over half these seats are located on the main ground floor, with the remainder distributed throughout the three mezzanine levels. The seating features plush upholstery, significantly more legroom than most theaters, storage compartments beneath each seat, and lighting at the end of rows to assist guests in finding their seats.
The auditorium of the Radio City Music Hall, the largest in the world upon the venue’s construction, is a structural marvel. As architectural critic Douglas Haskell commented; “The focus is the great proscenium arch, over 60 feet high and 100 feet wide, a huge semi-circular void. From that the energy disperses, like a firmament the arched structure rises outward and forward. The ‘ceiling’, uniting sides and top in its one great curve, proceeds by successive broad bands, like the bands of northern lights.”
