THE Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) auditorium in Menara DBKL 1, Jalan Raja Laut, will be closed from now until January 2022 to make way for a much- needed upgrade.
Officially opened in 1984, the auditorium was the venue for a variety of performing arts, cultural and school events, concerts, dance shows and private functions for over three decades.
According to DBKL a new tender will be called for the upgrade work to makeover the interior with new design, air conditioning and the pubblic address system.
The DBKL auditorium had been one of the most sought-after venues for bookings and there were a lot of calls from theatre groups and private companies to carry out shows and events there.
In Kuala Lumpur, apart from Istana Budaya, other event venues that are being utilised for cultural activities are Panggung Bandaraya, Malaysian Tourism Centre (MaTic) and Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka.
But DBKL’s auditorium is more popular because of its affordable rates.
