The Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center is a theater located in the SoNo district of Atlanta, Georgia. The theater, which seats 4,600, regularly hosts touring productions of Broadway musicals, concerts, seminars, comedy acts, and high school graduations and commencement ceremonies for Atlanta's John Marshall Law School. In addition to performances, the civic center can host conferences and exhibits as well, with 5,800 square feet (540 m²) of meeting space. The civic center is owned and operated by the Atlanta city government’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, but brings in enough revenue to be self-supporting.The Atlanta Civic Center was built in 1967 on the site of Ripley Street and part of Currier Street in the Buttermilk Bottom slum. It was partly built as the city's convention center, a role now largely filled by the state-run Georgia World Congress Center. It once served as the home of "Theatre of the Stars", a summer series of Broadway musicals featuring well-known stars of the entertainment industry. The Balanchine production of "The Nutcracker" was performed there annually for several years. The Civic Center also served as the site for the 1996 Summer Olympics cultural program.

    Since being able to get the best way to put up to my friends so busy here is the only thing I have seen.

    Looking for concerts, plays or events. This is where you go to be entertained. You see anything here from comedy, to religious, to music, to plays. Always sit on floor level as sitting in balcony acoustics can be a little off. Buy your tickets at the box office to save on convenience fees.

    I was very disappointed that we missed the How Sweet the Sound Tour due to the fact that after waiting in line to park they were full. We waited for parking (around the block) for at least 40 minutes and when we were third in line to get in they closed the parking lot. After waiting so long and never being here before we drove around to find something on the streets but what little there was, was full. I will never purchased tickets to attend an event at the Atlanta Civic Center again, I will avoid this venue.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
