Beautiful theatre hosting some of Vancouver's greatest shows. The venue boasts two levels of upper galleries with bathrooms on each floor. The acoustics are second to none and you can guarantee to get good audio quality wherever you may be. Seats are relatively comfortable but not the biggest I've seen. There is limited room between the rows. Easily accessed and egress isn't an issue.
Always fantastic. If you sit in the lower level, bring a sweater, if you sit up top, be prepared to take it off. It can be a bit Moody for temperate, but they usually have it worked out after the intermissions. Excellent for Opera and ballet
The seating angle is great, even on the highest balcony seats, the stage is fully visible (best from the aisle), multiple entrances are provided for busy events to speed up entry, sound is good from any seat in the house. Arrive very early if you want any concessions before you get seated. Parking is awful to get out of after a show, they should have someone guiding traffic and halting pedestrians to let a few cars out intermittently.
Beautiful theater that I have always had a great time at. Make sure to get to drink queue early otherwise you will be waiting for a bit - and may miss part of your show. Otherwise, this place is wonderful. Parking garages near by, lots of restaurants for dinner/drinks in walkable distance (again, plan accordingly for crowds), and a beautiful theater with great acoustics.
Came here for an event and had a wonderful time! The house band Five Alarm Funk is awesome! They had so much energy and spunk and they brought the crowd into the fun! The service here was very nice and the restrooms we're very cleanly. Would definitely recommend coming to this theater for any event you may be interested in! Also check out that band they are the best!
