Visited here part of a volleyball tournament. The outside is of great architecture, amazing. The inside needs some serious work. Is old, kids of dark, but it was warm. The amenities need work as well. We had a good tournament however. Avoid parking at the church lot, they charge money. The parking lot around the building is free or the... More

Went here recently for a wrestling event. The doors opened 90mins late and when we got in they were still setting up. Got a drink at the bar before entering the main event room, and when entering security scrambled to check IDs of people who were already drinking, holding up the line even further, very unorganized. No ventilation or AC,... More

I had an awesome concert experience for Yo Gotti and Jadakiss last March. Although some things are inevitable at rap concerts (fights, marijuana, etc.), security was able to keep the large crowds safe. We were greeted by an abundance of police officers on our way out, some of them in riot gear (I am pretty sure it's not like this... More

Went here with a friend to the Magic Men show waited in line...40 minutes. One lady tells the single security checking bags one person at a time that people were going around him-he said nothing I can do about it. Next thing after that everyone surged the door. Otherwise would have waited a lot longer. Show was great but this... More

Concerts here are great. It is an easy in/out if you get there early. Cage the Elephant and the rest of the groups were a good mix!

This was a great venue for watching a robotics competition. The views and seating were adequate. Not too crowded.

We have attended many concerts here. Staff is always friendly and helpful. There has never been a security issue, either inside or out. I live in Buffalo, NY and we stay overnight nearby. I will never hesitate to attend a concert in this venue.

My husband and I attended a concert with our teenager daughter and her friend. The acoustics were a little distorted because of the size of the hall, but it was clean, spacious and the staff was wonderful. Security was top notch, which left us feeling good about two young girls being amongst a crowd. Even though it wasn't our favourite... More

We went here for a concert - we took a cab from downtown and it was less than $10. It is a very neat old building - the security was excellent and it felt very safe. There were booths along the sides that you could get to lounge in if you were early - which we were. They sell beer,... More
