Keller Auditorium Reviews & Ratings
I completely enjoyed this venue. The ladies at items check desk, helped me with a seating situation... I'm a special needs person who could not sit in the chairs with arms,so they delivered a wider seat for my needs! Thanks so much for your time and consideration in this matter! By the way, this is a great place for sound and all seats are good!
My wife and I came here to see a comedy podcast. Was so much fun. The security and ushers they had were a blast to be around while we were waiting, and then so helpful once we were looking for our seats.
I went here to see Wicked, and it was amazing. The auditorium is huge, and every seat has a good view. The best seats are probably the ones at the back, because you get a great view, and you can be first to the bathrooms at intermission.
Saw Wicked here and loved it. So, I got tickets to take my son to (his favorite) Charlie & the Chocolate Factory Saturday matinee because it seemed the safest option for a kid (time and show choice). Guess what? Keller Auditorium is a small 3 blocks from the protest zone marked by police as DANGEROUS and AVOID at all costs (as well as the general downtown area) on Saturday. I am shocked that Portland 5 and Keller are so tone deaf to their patrons bringing kids to this show that they refuse to offer any choices. We have to risk exposing our son to violent, converging groups or...eat our tickets. Good job Keller. To owner copy&pasted response: Thank you but I’ve already called and it literally leads to a string of recordings. Other numbers I tried dropped me into a call center for Portland 5 where I was told all sales are final, good luck. (Even though you are still advertising available seats on other days. NO Exchanges, NO WAY.) I just find it amazing that the city shuts down for a little (no) snow but police warnings of hate driven brawls? Totally cool. On with the show! We should have better options here.
This was my first time here. What a beautiful venue. I went to watch the Walk Off The Earth concert. It was nice to be able to take a drink into the auditorium as long as you put a lid on your cup.
