Restored theatre in Bonavista is a community gem
Sep 2019 • Family
The Garrick Theatre is a totally restored historic theatre in one of Newfoundland’s most popular go-to destinations, Bonavista. It shows movies (both current hits and golden oldies), hosts musical acts big and small (in the large theatre space and the more intimate bar area), and serves home-made ice cream! People of all ages attend films and events, which have a warm community atmosphere. Our visits there — especially for Newfoundland music — were real highlights for us this trip. We look forward to going there again ourselves — and we’ll be recommending the Garrick to anyone who is lucky enough to visit Bonavista.

Great entertainment in a quaint theatre setting. It was a treat to see quality performers such as Mallory Johnson and Janet Cull.

Check out the local entertainment
Sep 2018
We were pleasantly surprised that there was local entertainment at the Garrick Annex during our stay. The tickets were very reasonable (under $10 each) as were the wine/beer prices. It's a comfortable little venue and a nice way to pass an evening in beautiful Bonavista.

A historic insight!

It is imperative you know something about the history on Newfoundland to understand this recounting of stories. Very sad but truthful past.

This building alone has so much history. It's like a step back in time to simpler days but yet it's idea for today and this community.

A nice theatre in the center of Bonavista. Within walking distance of a number of accommodations with restaurants in the area.
Comfortable seats and a concession stand and bar.

Outdated, old and overpriced
Oct 2016 • Friends
Like most of Bonavista, the Garrick 'needs a coat of paint' among other things. Parking is terrible. Went to see a concert and the opening musician sat behind a music stand. Couldn't even see his face. The rest of the talent were constantly tuning instruments and were off key.

I am a Newfoundlander and support our own, but this place seats very few, is cramped and has a musty smell. Raze the place and build a new Garrick Theatre with adequate parking. Maybe a more capable building will attract real talent.

Outstanding theater
Sep 2016 • Couples
Very attractive theater with just around 200 seats. All seats offer an excellent view of the stage. We saw a live band play Beatles hits and it was exceptional - theater acoustics were great. While we did not use it, the annex looked to be a good place to sit with friends after the show. Parking in the nearby post office is available at night but fills quickly. An excellent thing to do while visiting Bonavista.
