We visited here for the 2014 POCI car show. Three rooms full of great Pontiacs from every era. The facility was well air conditioned and clean. Metered parking was cheap cheap and easily accessible. Food at the snack bar super expensive thought. Eat before you go, and get a drink at the water fountain.

Great symphony and other music programs. Musical theater provides a wide variety of programs that are 1st rate. Numerous civic programs are hosted in the Convention Center - everything from the Flower and Garden Shop to Custom Auto Events.

I really enjoyed the opera at the Century II. They even had a screen above the stage that gave subtitles for the arias in the opera, which was a huge help. The orchestra & the singers were amazing.

The Three Phantom's had each played that role on Broadway at one time or another plus many other roles. Their voices were so beautiful and the symphony backed them up perfectly on the show tunes. We loved it.

This landmark from the late 60s accomodated our large family conference comfortably. The main problem is lack of much in the way of food service in the area aroung the center, especially on the weekend when the business district goes dormant. The Hyatt Hotel adjoins and does have bar and food and coffee service but can get pricy for big... More

I was invited at the last minute to attend "The King and I" put on by Musical Theatre Wichita and it was delightful. I enjoyed it immensely and can hardly wait to go again. The lobby got a bit warm while waiting for the doors to open but the theatre itself was comfortable (I did see a few women wearing... More

We attended the production of a ' King and I" and the young actors were excellent. There were a noticeable number of Asian American actors and extras in this production that contributed greatly to the success of the play. The sets were beautifully designed and also added to the environment of the set. Great singing by several of the actors... More

A great venue in a futuristic setting. It is still ahead of its time in terms of design. A great place to perform in or take in a performance.
