This is the premier place for all graduations in our area. It's just a big arena for special events. Nothing spectacular about it. I've seen bigger and better in other states.

One would think with back-to-back graduation cerimonies all day the James Brown Arena would staff appropriately for restroom cleanliness and supplies. It's really absurd to run out of TP and have other unsightly indications of neglect. Doesn't reflect well on Augusta to all the out of town visitors.

The Civic Center (James Brown Arena) isn't anything special. It's average size (say Phillips Arena in Atlanta) and not many people want to book good shows here due to the crowd turnouts, but the good shows (popular at the time) usually do sell out.

"I remember when you could be exited about attending an event at the civic center. I guess my emory is better than my children think if I can remember that far back but I see no reason to ever return. It is dirty, needs many repairs and the attractions don t attract me.

Not the best place in town to be. High ticket cost, over rated shows, serly employees and not the cleanest place in town. Not a place I will ever go back to.

We go here all the time during ice hockey season. It's an older venue but it works well for sports because of its size. The noise carries well in the arena

This place may not be in the best location down town but I do feel safe when I go here. My biggest complaint is that there is not enough parking. Other than that I take my whole family here for Christmas in the South and concerts,etc.

I know times are difficult for a lot of city governments right now. However, as soon as things rebound, tear this place down and start over. It's concourses are tiny, concessions only make the concourses worse and sightlines from several seating areas are just bad. I don't care who is there and how big of a fan of that act... More

The seating on the floor where you pay premium is pretty bad. Bad seats, as far as views, and bad chairs.
