This was my first time at this theater, really my first time in Columbus, GA. I went to see Dave Chapelle on April 8th, the 7pm show. My visit started off fine, but I was a bit disappointed when I found out that the theater did not have a concession stand. I would soon find out that this was the least of my worries. They were extra strict about people having their phones out, like you couldnt even have it off and hold it in your hands. When I say strict I mean excessive/ FBI, SWAT, and DEA all in one. I was in the mezzanine area, you had to enter through mezzanine D and we sat in seat 206 and 205. The ushers/FBI agents closest to us took their jobs way to serious. Throughout the show they continued to block our vision and disrupt our hearing by walking into the aisles and accusing people of having or using their phones when they were not. I unfortunately ended up being one of these people. I was leaning forward trying to enjoy the show and maybe 20min into Dave Chapelle, the same short, fair skinned usher with a short black weave came to the end of my row and started saying several times and pointing to me "you, come here." At first I thought she was talking to someone else, so I looked to my left, but didnt see anyone. When I realized she was talking to me, I insisted that I had done nothing wrong and refused to get up. She then left and returned with a security guard and 3 cops who came into my row, forced me to get up, and escorted me out of the mezzanine area. They were so loud that even Dave Chapelle stopped his show to ask what was going on up there and he also insisted that the people they were trying to kick out should stay. After showing the cops the gallery on my phone which had no images or video of any of the acts, the manager of the theater insisted that I be escorted out of the building and not allowed to return inside. They also wouldnt refund my money despite the fact that I showed them I had nothing on my phone. This experience was unbelievable and one of the most awkward and embarrassing moments in my life. I will not be returning to this theater.
Got to see a few different shows here! All of them were fantastic and the crew always had incredible ways of using the theater to their advantage with all of what it had to offer! I would definitely recommend coming here!
Lovely clean facility, friendly volunteer staff. Easy ticket purchasing, easy parking. Comfortable, intimate setting. Nice downtown area. Quality performance. Cant wait to attend another event in the future.

Great building! I took my cousin to see Drumline Live, she had the best time. The theater is very nice. The attendeds were very helpful on finding your seat. Check Out an event here, youll enjoy it.
Power & Love School held its first meeting in Georgia. Facility & staff worked hard to please. Very comfortable with everything you need within walking distance. Convenient parking. Well secured too.
Beautiful place. However they really need to step up their game and offerings. There are literally no shows on the calendar for basically the entire summer. Would love to see more comics play here.
We always love coming to the River Center. Today, I was unexpectedly temporarily handicapped and needed wheelchair assistance. Our usher William couldnt have been nicer.
The theaters inside are very nice. Ive never attended a concert or show here, but I have attended events held in the lobby and on stage. Thats right ON the stage.
Went to watch the prodigy dance recital, it was a nice theater with decent seating, clean restrooms, and a parking garage nearby but it is nothing magnificent.
Truly impressed with the RiverCenter. Came here to see Seinfeld. The staff are wonderful, and the facility is top-notch.
Great place, awesome presentation and people ! I went to a hair battle and to watch my sons perform great job everyone!
A beautiful theater - I always look forward to coming to this performing arts center for Miss Georgia each year!
This place is nice for all types of events. The Girls Inc put on a wonderful performance 4th of July weekend.
This place has an artistic vibe and the staff was extremely helpful during the event that I attended.
Great Symphony performance in Legacy Hall. The Organ with Christopher Houlihan sounded marvellous.
