“Great Place for Meeting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Consider the BJCC for a business meeting or convention! Great meeting rooms, easy to navigate, good AV and banquet staff!

“Good venue for theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I came here recently to see a production of Jersey Boys. The atmosphere was nice and the sound inside the theatre was great. For the most part, parking is readily available on the perimeter of the complex.

The BJCC was built in the 70's and definitely shows some age. Some would argue that it needs to be replaced. However for a city that does not have the money or great support for anything to do with tax money, the BJCC has done a commendable job of keeping the interior of the place relatively up to date. The recent addition of the Westin Hotel and an adjoining entertainment district also adds more options for a pre or post show drink or meal near the complex.

If you get an opportunity to check out a car show, deer show, concert, or musical here, it is worth checking out.

“Great Facility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I attended a Disney musical show there with my nephews, and we had a great time. The facility is large, parking was near the entrance, and accessibility was easy.

“Needs to be torn down!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Please tear this venue down and replace it with a more modern facility. The acoustics are terrible, it is old and out dated. I have attended many concerts, recitals and functions there and it never amazes me how out dated this place is. The performers are great but the sound system sucks. If they are going to build a modern entertainment district downtown they really need to consider remodeling or re-building the BJCC. Perfomers at the Tuscaloosa Ampertheater sound much better than when they perform at the BJCC.
