The General Motors Centre "The GM Centre" opened in 2006 and is a multi-purpose arena located in downtown Oshawa, Ontario. The GM centre was constructed as a replacement for the outdated Oshawa Civic Auditorium. The main tenants are the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League, the Oshawa Power of the National Basketball League of Canada, and the Oshawa Machine, of the Canadian Lacrosse League. The state of the art facility also features the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame, Prospects Bar and Grill, an Oshawa Generals retail store, executive seating and special club seats. As Durham Region’s premier Sports and Entertainment Facility, “Venues Today Magazine” ranked the General Motors Centre number 15 in their “2011 Year-End Top Stops” report for venues of 5,001-8,000 capacity!

Famous quotes containing the words centre, general and/or motors:
“Here in the centre stands the glass. Light
Is the lion that comes down to drink. There
And in that state, the glass is a pool.
Ruddy are his eyes and ruddy are his claws
When light comes down to wet his frothy jaws”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)

—Thornton Wilder (18971975)
