There are many factors. For staters , the size. An auditorium to qualify as one , has a stage where any function can be held. Drama , dance or simple lecture. Generally, stage curtains are the rule rather than an exception.Stage lighting with dimmers, wooden flooring, are the accepted norms.
The general seating is arranged in pews ,similar to the movie halls, taking care that no one persons vision is obstructed.
The single most important factor is the SOUND, ECHO, and REVEBRATION. These should be totally absent. These are all easily achievable. There are acquistic materials for the walls, ceiling in addition to a good acquistic design.
