Century II offers a very nice venue for concerts and live plays. It is conveniently located, and has great FREE parking, although the handicap parking needs to be improved and expanded. We love to attend concerts here, as the seats are actually made for real people, and you actually get to face the stage, unlike the new place they built... More

Stopped going to Symphony as my disability progressed. Thanks to "Wichita's" general view on improving accessibility this older venue lacks greatly in that regard. The handicap parking is way to far for our needs. Drop offs work best but not if your driving. Or the doors are locked on one side of the building. Which happens with heightened security. So...

This was the event ctr for many shows and concerts back in the 80s and 90s. It is still great for home shows and other attractions but not really big enough for entertainment and has been replaced with Intrust Arena.

Just got back from attending a conference at this venue. The place was ridiculously cold! I had on four layers of clothing and still had to leave every couple of hours to stand outside to warm up. Many people were complaining, but nothing was done. I even brought this to the attention of one of the volunteers manning the information... More

Always enjoy the mini-vacations we take every summer attending Music Theater at Century II. Fantastic musicals!

We were here for the YMCA Nationals Gymnastics Competition - the venue was very nice. Normal concession food, slightly overpriced, but the venue was perfect for the competition.

Every summer season fresh young acting grads from around the country apply to take this stage. The company is rounded out with seasoned Broadway actors and the plays are incredible, and not too expensive. I got to take a back stage tour of costumes and props and watched as they prepared for Aida. Fantastic space!

We have always enjoyed Century II for concerts. Some of it is looking a little run down, maybe a little TLC is in order.

Century II is not only convention space, it has world class concerts and theater as well. I like the unique circular shape that make for getting around very easy.
