The Civic Auditorium is a multipurpose convention center located in New York City.
As part of a plot to kidnap the Ghostbusters, Ray Stantz received an invitation to be a guest speaker at a comic book convention being held at the Civic Auditorium.  However, it was made up and that day, the auditorium was closed. Instead, Ray entered from the back door and was captured by several Ghostworld Kidnappers.
