Auditorium, (University, school, etc.) hall


Explanation:
A room for the gathering of an audience, as in a school, library, etc. A building or hall for speeches, concerts, etc. Webster's Dictionary. Sometimes the word "auditorio" is used to mean "audience". It comes from the Latin word "audire"= to hear.

could it be auditoria? in which case it would be audit


Explanation:
First of all, the other answers are absolutely correct but auditorio is so close to auditorium that it surprised me that you didn't pick up on that and made me think that it must have been used in some other context where auditorium wouldn't fit.....so I thought of auditoria which means audit. Dunno if this helps but... just in case. Good luck!

auditory? listening room? hearing?


Explanation:
I'm still dwelling on your question because, like I said I think auditorio is so close to auditorium that I don't think that's what you're looking for - maybe it is in which case you have your answer but I thought I'd give you everything that popped into my head just in case. The trouble is audio is the root and auditorio can mean so many things. If we had more context we could zero in on it. Hope something here helps you! If not, give us more context and we'll be glad to help. Good luck!

auditorium


Explanation:
If it isn't "auditorium" maybe it's the actual people in it, i.e. "audience"?
Good luck

12 hrs
the audience


Explanation:
It's normal to call the attendance as "audience", specially in concert halls, TV studios, etc., to differenciate from "public", "crowd" etc.
Luck!
