Good spot to catch concerts and plays. The other half is a museum, with a kids touch interactive gallery. They also have changing collections from art to motorcycles. stop in and check it out.

Good exhibits travel through here. I recently saw the movie memorabilia exhibit, which was awesome. Fun, interactive permanent displays. They have a performance venue there too, so check frequently for good entertainment.
