Excellent sound system and video. Watched a movie based on the story of Jonah from the Bible. Very exciting acoustics and comfortable seating. 4,585 for the movie.

The place was so well laid out, the staff were extremely helpful, and not pushy. They guided me up to the Suite, and the food and drink were awesome. What a way to watch your first Ice Hockey Game. The Home team won. Go Mavericks

I attended a Maverick's game this week with my family. There isn't a bad seat in the house! They have a ton of food vendors available with many options! Only two bar areas, typical high prices for food and drink.
