Depends on the event. I have seen walk-thru detectors there before, but have also seen staff poorly trained on paying attention to the detectors' chirping.
I was there for a concert last Saturday and they have a permanent row of walk-thru metal detectors at the ticket-taking point at the top of the escalator.
You can purchase your ticket from the box office without going thru the detectors, but to enter the venue itself you must empty all pockets into little white tubs and go thru the detectors. Amusingly, they also make all women open their purses and they dig thru the purses with CHOPSTICKS (really!) looking for contraband.
