This is a great entertainment venue and I highly recommend that you see your favorite entertainers, music group or play scheduled here. Most seats are good, no matter the price. Acustics aren't perfect for a large concert building, but does not detract from experience. I've...More

If you enjoy old cars or bright shiny vehicles, Kool April Nites is here every April. It's a good show. The Civic is a good spot for it. Indoor and outdoor areas, plenty of room for food and shops, and sun, shade, and bathrooms.
