The Long Center is Austin’s center stage, but we’re also Austin’s Front Row. Every day we bear witness to the city’s creativity, soul, and diversity. We’re proud to say that we’re a product of our environment, and even prouder to say that we’re cultivators of it. We have the best view of the city, so we see the Austin community clearly. That’s how we’re able to present the performances, music, movies, hangouts, festivals, and countless other interests that unite, delight, and inspire us all. We’re not just putting Austin culture on display. We’re extending a firsthand, front-row invitation to help shape it.
