One of the best things about Century II is the location. Easy to find, and the parking is good. A good place to hear the Wichita Symphony, or watch Music Theatre of Wichita. Also a great place for the Wichita Downtown Lions Club annual Pancake Day.

My friend gave me an extra ticket to see the Wichita Grand Opera perform La Boheme in October 2016. I had never been in the Century II Center, although I've been outside it plenty of times and have visited similar venues for concerts.

My wife and I have seen several productions here, the latest being "Wicked " an absolutely brilliant show. Whilst we were able to see from our balcony seats we found them a bit far to see any specific details of the cast. Seats a bit closers next time I think. Will definitely be back.

Got tickets for Saturday matinee. My wife and I agree that it was simply wonderful! Hats off to a wonderful production from actors, musicians, stag hands, lighting, sound. Nothing but spectacular! So looking forward to coming back for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!

The concert hall is fine for symphonies but you can be way back for any type of theater - too far to see faces really. I like the Mary Jane Teal Theater a lot and wish they used that more.

Have been there many times for different events. We have gone to the home show, women's show, and have taken in some theater also. My favorite time of the year is Christmas and The Nutcracker. Always a festive event. Also saw The Lion King. Awesome!
