The DeBruce/Allen Fieldhouse Theater

Within the DeBruce Center, paired with the wonderful exhibits in the adjoining Booth Hall of Athletics, one would think the full story of Naismith’s legacy is covered. Not so! There are so many engaging documentaries, movies and video clips that help to complete the tale. So just past the Rules Gallery and just inside the Fieldhouse itself lies a theater, tucked behind a sign made up of a large piece of the Fieldhouse court from years ago.

 

The theater provides a comfortable, quiet space to view these many exciting video clips of seasons gone by, of traditions explained, and of the love story that is KU basketball.
