We've always enjoyed shows at the Charlie White Theatre in the Mary Winspear Centre. The theatre is the perfect size - large enough to support major acts, but small enough to be intimate and comfortable. The box office staff are very friendly and accomodating.

I was there recently for a concert and before that for the cat show. Ideal venue for both events! Very roomy and comfortable. Good acoustics. Nice washrooms. Good parking lot. I've enjoyed every event I have attended there.

Attended a 3 day seminar here and was very pleased with the facility. The doors/windows can all be raised like a garage door so as to allow cool air to circulate through the room. The acoustics were good and the lighting excellent.
