Product Description


M-4107, 30603-B

The Bangor Auditorium is a 5,948 seat multipurpose arena located in downtown Bangor, Maine. It opened October 1, 1955 and is used for concerts, sporting events, circus performances, political rallies, as well as trade shows. It shares the same complex as the Bangor Civic Center. For decades, it has hosted the Maine Principals' Association basketball tournament each February, as well as the graduation ceremonies for Bangor High School in June. It also served as the home of the University of Maine Men's and Women's basketball teams until 1992. The V-shape style of the building gives it the look of giant wings and adds to the atmosphere. A statue of Paul Bunyan towers outside as a symbol of the city's prosperous history as a lumber port in the early-to-mid 1800's.

Since opening in 1955, the Bangor Auditorium has seen NBA, minor league, college and high school basketball. On Dec. 30, 1955, the Boston Celtics and Syracuse Nationals played the first regular-season NBA game in Maine in front of 4,200 at the Auditorium. The Celtics won 110-103.
