Carry at Keller Auditorium in Portland?

Hey Folks,

I'm attending an event at Keller Auditorium this week in Portland and was wondering what the security checks are to see if I can carry my CHL.

I'd like to be able to carry in Portland and not have to put it in the truck lock box.

Any insight is appreciated!

Thanks for everyone's feedback. The event checked bags but no metal detectors. There were signs on the doors saying no weapons (even CHL) allowed in the building.

Maybe I was carrying, maybe I wasn't....that's the point of "concealed"

The building is owned by the city of Portland but I'm not sure they care what the laws are regarding CHL.
 
Went to the Nutcracker in December, Shield .45 and two reloads by my side, no issues. Never seen wanting or metal detectors used there, not to say they don’t exist, I’ve just never encountered them.

My wife and I have found that "purse checks" are mostly looking for glass liquor bottles. She set off the portable walk thru metal detector at place in Portland last month and the private security guy about $#!^ himself. She just smiled and said "Must be the metal buckles on my boots" and he let her just walk in. Of course she is cute and innocent looking while I would have been tackled because I dress like this

    This is the closest gun close to my house and they have always been super nice. I have bought two guns off them and sold one of mine to them.
