Auditorium in the Neo-Gothic and Romanesque Scranton Masonic Temple and Scottish Rite Cathedral. The rectangular plan building is clad in coursed ashlar Indiana limestone supported by a structural steel framework. The temple-cathedral originally included the main auditorium, a grand ballroom, an eight lane bowling alley, a library, a "Ladies Parlor," two formal lodge rooms, a billiard and card parlor, and a smaller theater / lodge hall combination. The facility was later operated and maintained by a non-profit corporation as the Scranton Cultural Center.

Traditional country fans know what real country is supposed to be, and regardless of whether or not radio wants to play us, we have people wanting to see us that much more because they don't hear us on the radio. (George Jones)
