  • Arrrrggghhhhh!!
  • Gametime
  • Check out our comprehensive review of the Portland Pirates experience by Brandon Rolfe
  • I've been going here since I was four years old. I love this place, so many great memories!
  • Got thrown out for jumping in the middle, 5th song in, for a show that got rescheduled... I deserve it though. Never get seats for a heavy concert. GA is the way to go if you wanna mosh with your pals
  • Avoid the popcorn - it was made YESTERDAY
  • Beer and bathroom lines are long, so come early to find your seat and get settled!
  • Recently renovated. Houses lots of events. Recently saw a Pirates game. Was pretty good. Had indoor fireworks for New Year's Eve. :) parking is all around you just have to find the cheapest.
  • Momentum Convention
  • Looks nice with the remodel.
  • Trade shows are a cluster here. Not enough space---winding through narrow hallways and then through the seating area down to the ground level.
  • Go Pirates!
  • U Maine Black Bears won!!!!!!!
  • Yummy French fries!!
  • 1b. All that fried food they serve at the Civic Center is kid-friendly? Why do they let anyone eat it in the kid-friendly section?
