    Any current or former Valdosta residents care to answer a question?

    Their website seems to indicate that this venue is owned by the city. So that would mean it's legal to carry into.

    It doesn't happen to reside on school property or anything does it? I'm unfamiliar with Valdosta's school systems.

    Found my answer.

    I contacted the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office and the Valdosta City Manager.

    Both confirmed that Mathis Auditorium is city owned and not affiliated with the school system.

    But is it a "government building" and do they screen? If not, will they let you open carry there?

    From what I've seen and read there's no screening because it's a venue rented out by various entities (weddings, performances, etc).

    Considering it's a ballet recital I'm attending I anticipate no issues.

    It was dim in the auditorium so I'm sure I wasn't even noticed.

    There was no screening. However later in the day there was a deputy loitering in the lobby. She never noticed me either.

    No issues.
