The basic difference between in and at is that we use in when we think about the building itself, or if we use it with cities, villages, such as: in hospital/prison/jail.

We use at to say where an event takes place or if we are thinking of a place as a point. We also use at when we say at somebody's house, like: at Mary's home, at a concert.
