Roy Thomson Hall, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
The venue is acoustically good. It's got near 360 seating which gives a lot of viewing angles of the musicians. The seats are comfortable, not too tightly positioned. It was built in a very modern style at the time, so I suppose it's showing its age that way. This is not to say that it isn't well-maintained. It's quite clean and bright. Lastly, I found the myriad doors, ramps and stairways somewhat confusing. But it made my trip to the restroom an adventure.
Pretty good venue, good seating and good acoustics. Been here a couple of time to see orchestral stuff. There is parking on the south side of the block, underground, so this is nice and convenient. The building is quite interesting, lots of concrete and glass. Good intimate venue, but none of the scale and grandeur of somewhere like Harpa in Reykjavik. The worst part, and the reason for not giving 5 stars, is that it's a real pain to get to now, unless you live within walking distance. We drove through gridlock trying to get in, and all the roads were still jammed at 10pm when we left. Allow plenty of time if you have to navigate the awful downtown Toronto traffic.
Beautiful hall, nice staff, good concerts. Been here over a dozen times and the venue is well managed every time. Only issue I have is the washrooms - it seems like there should be more of them as lines are way too long during intermissions.
Great venue for concerts, but not set up for movies. The sound from the speakers echo and it's hard to hear the special effects at times. Needs a better sound system if movie showings become more of a staple. Overpriced popcorn and beverages. And there's almost always a lineup to the washroom. Otherwise it's a nice location, close to everything.
We attended a concert during Remembrance day . The concert was nice but little too long for my taste. Hour is good enough, the last hour i was restless especially when the music is monotone . But I liked the words as they could see them on the screen. Very poetic.
