Alton Brown Event

This is a wonderful performance center. Not a bad seat in the house! Very easy access off the I-5 Freeway and plenty of close parking.

Went to see Alton Brown and the seats, even though in the back, were good. However, the loud, obnoxious people near us, made it hard to hear the performer. The ushers did not do anything about it. Also noticed that the people scanning tickets at the door could have been a bit faster. The chimes went off several times while... More

This dynamic building provides space for a wide variety of uses--theatrical, orchestral, musical groups, commencement programs. The unique architectural design of the Hult Center begs to be viewed.

I have lived in Eugene for almost 50 years and remember when the Hult Center was built in 1982. I have been to innumerable symphonies, ballets, operas, musicals, and Bach Festival Concerts since then. For a mid-size city, it's amazing we have such a fabulous performing arts center, with comfortable seating, excellent acoustics, a large and small performance hall and... More

This place is a huge rip off. Drinks are extremely overpriced. The ushers escort you to the wrong seats. Bathrooms are dirty, and not maintained very well. The seats are uncomfortable at best. It's time to demolish this "has been" place. That won't happen, I know, so the best that can be accomplished is using the greed money and revamp... More

For a town the size of Eugene we are fortunate to have a Venue like the Hult Center. The facility is beautiful, with a real northwest feel, great location, good parking access. This is home to the symphony, opera, ballet, Radio Redux and numerous other local performances throughout the year. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful in making reservations... More

We came up to watch our son perform in the Nutcracker Remix. It was such a cute spin on the Nutcracker, we really enjoyed the venue and the show.

The Hult center is a gem in Eugene. I've been there for rock concerts, plays to the ballet. Excellent venue and a treasure for this small town.
