We went to 311 which was outside the center. The center has great art on it but it has basically become a fossil due to other facilities in area. Great location in downtown but limited parking.

I have seen many concerts here and this fall's was no different. Not the best venue in the country but a perfect size for lincoln. no alcohol sold here.

This building is getting pretty old but it's still a good venue for a out of town circus or other sorts of entertainment. Parking can be a problem but go early and you'll be fine. Prices are usually pretty reasonable.

We were there a few years ago for the USA Roller Sports National competition. It s a nice building, but you probably wouldn't go inside unless you were there for an event. The real attraction is the mural on the outside of the building.

Sad to see the auditorium close after so many years of proudly serving Lincoln. It is incredibly awesome that St. Paul purchased the gym floor since their boys and girls basketball teams both took state championships on that floor!!

Nothing to talk about here. It is just a big gym. Acoustics are bad for concerts. Concession stands are scarce with long lines. Luckily this facility is in the process of being demolished, as it is not worth going to.
