Love it

The sound inside the Globe News Center is amazing. I like the coziness of it yet the deco is grandiose. The seats are comfortable, too.

"Mary Poppins" at the Globe News Center for the Performing Arts was an excellent production for their summer production featuring local talent performed by school age children. Such amazing talent was enjoyed by so many of us from the entire area. Excellent Entertainment!

Amarillo is still considered a Cow Town. But we've had a symphony for over 90 continuous years and a state of the art venue for musical performances. Amarillo also boasts a top notch Opera Company and the Lone Star Ballet. This ain't your average Cow Town

I am from the west coast and travel for work. We saw the symphony here and we're floored not only by the quality of the beautiful space but but the dedication to keeping the performing arts in Amarillo. Needless to say we returned for more music and shows including Les Miserable which was performed beautifully. When people refer to Amarillo... More

The acoustics are great and most seats have a view of the stage except the first 10 or so rows. The unique architecture is an homage to Amarillo's airplane industry. Your experience will depend on the type of event you attend. Staff seem to vary widely and it can be confusing finding the right path to your seat.

We have been able to view the youth symphony here a handful of times. This place is beautiful. Very new and it is an ecellent addition to the downtown district. Very unique architecture on the outside and glowing designed stage on the inside.

We have been here for several events - symphony, ballets and opera. The Center is a very beautiful and modern facility. Nice large bathrooms that are easily accessible. Also, there is a cash bar for most events. A real jewel in Amarillo's crown!

Eight of us drove up from Lubbock and were absolutely delighted with the entire experience. We were surprised how wonderful the facility was in every aspect. The acoustics were marvelous and the sound was set perfectly. Lyle Lovett and his Large Band were fantastic. We will not hesitate to make the little trip up I-27 to catch an act at... More
