From the moment you enter the theater is grandeur and ornate feel brings delight to all your senses. A fantastic venue for the city to be proud of and showcase.

An evening with Lawrence Hill. Nicely organised, gorgeous theatre. The sound system needs tweaking but the evening was fantastic. The music in the lobby was invigorating. Book signing well-organised and gracious. Lovely evening and enchanting venue.

I love this theatre. I have been here to watch shows and also for private events and a corporate sponsored speaking engagement. I am impressed every time, day or night. The staff is exceptionally polite and knowledgeable. The events always go off without a hitch....More

Listened to a guest speaker in the theatre. Very comfortable seats, able to hear the speaker well, and a nice entrance way.

What a shame it wasn't full. We saw a great concert here. Reasonable price. A treat for me and my teen. A pity it is starting to look a little old but it is open and a landmark. Loads of seats, all looked like fine...More

The seats are comfortable. Before and after the show and during intermission there is a wide variety of beverages. There is also the 'Musique Boutique' selling great merchandise with a definite 'boutique' flavour.
