Destination DPAC

See a show. Watch a film. Experience the arts. The DeBartolo Performing Arts Center brings world-class artists, filmmakers, and performances to campus and is host to hundreds of University and academic events each year.

Presenting Series shows are only $10. Notre Dame students can see internationally renowned artists for only $10!

Browning Cinema tickets are $4 or less! Free films are sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Classic Cinema. Several films also allow free admission for Holy Cross and Saint Mary’s students with student ID.

The McDonald Center for Student Well-Being also offers free McWell Tix for select film screenings on Friday and Saturday evenings! Look at the cinema schedule to see which films offer McWell Tix then reserve your seats by phone or in-person at the Ticket Office. Limited quantities available on a first-come, first-served basis. McWell Tix are only available for Notre Dame students at this time.

The center is only a short walk from the heart of campus and even closer to the Duncan Student Center.

Don’t feel like walking? Jump on the Campus South Shuttle route. We’re open every weekday for classes, rehearsal, behind-the-scenes stuff, tours, and more.
