    They can be the same thing. But they are not always.

    Re: assembly hall

    An assembly hall is a multi-purpose building where people gather for various functions, events or even parties.
    An auditorium is a place where lectures and performances are held.
    The uses of the two types of building overlap each other. An auditorium needs to be acoustically designed to facilitate its use. It has stepped floor and seating to give the audience a good view of the stage whereas the floor of an assembly hall is flat.

    Assembly halls can also have tiered seating.

    The names probably vary from one country to another. For example, sports halls in the US are also called assembly halls and such places certainly have the stadium type of seating. Whereas all auditoriums, or some of them called lecture halls, invariably have tiered seating.
