This venue needs to get with it, no cellphone signs or photography are still up. Everyone uses their phones to video things these days. Once you left the venue you could not re-enter. On summer nights, this might be a little unreasonable. Also, paying $11 for a mediocre glass of wine in a plastic glass that you have to chug... More

It was fantastic to have The Lion King visit Vancouver, the show was amazing. The theatre has great acoustics and has a nice atmosphere. Negatives are that they don't seem to be that strict on seating people on time for the show to start *on time* and people who chat/look at their phones during the show seem to get away... More

We saw "The Lion King" which was a superb production- as it was only 100 yards from our hotel we could not resist. The Box office staff were most helpful in picking out the best of the Returns- as we were booking for the next evening. The seats were as good as you could get- however the leg room was... More

Lion King. We attended the matinee and the show was great. The only negative is that the matinee had a lot of kids, not all seated with their families in the same area which made it somewhat disruptive during the performance. But all in all a great show.

I attended the latest show there which was the musical Lion King. The venue is well maintained and has good acoustic. The negative side is that the space between rows is too narrow and the entire people sitting in a row have to get up to allow passage for others. And also the ladies' powder room is hardly suitable for... More

Always a pleasure to experience professional performances Well maintained with good acoustics, and comfortable seating. Pricey for families or groups, so choose carefully, what you really want to see and enjoy.

It's an older…1960's? building. Lion King is playing now. Small, sparse washroom options. Drinks reasonably priced.

We went and saw the Disney's Lion Kion. Great show. 12 parking rate to park under the theatre. I've always found other parking in the area for much more

Excellent venue - hard to get a bad seat and the acoustics are very good. Beautiful live stage theatre.

Had been quite a few years since I had attended a performance here. All the windows and lighting and brightness of the day made the lobby area a very enjoyable space to be in. Appreciate the multiple locations for beverage purchase. Friendly helpful staff. Inside the theatre, the seating is typical. I was comfortable, in our balcony seats. I can't... More
