We attended the Jeremy Hotz comedy show and he was hilarious. The theatre is restored to it's historical beauty with great seating (more room between rows) for excellent stage views. Having attended concerts at the Imperial before, the acoustics are world class. The theatre staff were great with booking and picking up ticket, and the ushers very helpful during the... More

This was my first time at this theatre and I found it quite impressive, old world charm and not a bad seat in the house. The show was everything we had hoped for! Kudos to the cast and crew!!!

We headed to saint john earlier in the year to catch the Jim Jefferies show, seeing as I was surprised to see the guy in this corner of the world the 4 hour drive was well worth it. There wasn't really a bad seat in the house, the acoustics were great and seats were comfortable. The only complaint I have... More

We love going to the imperial theatre, I've been there many times having grown up in Saint John. When we moved back last year I took my wife for the first time and now she loves it too. The acoustics of the theatre are excellent and not a bad seat in the house. It's very conveniently located uptown. There is... More

We dropped in at the Imperial Theater while strolling through downtown Saint John. It was open so we went inside to have a look since the outside was impressive enough to attract us. We were extremely glad we made the stop. There was no one else around. A person was coming out of a room with a coffee in his... More

Our tour guide took us to the Imperial Theater and it was a gracious old lady from the past. It has been visited by monarchy over the years and once was scheduled for tear down but a rich man years ago bought it for 1 million dollars and then solicited the home folks for donations to restore it. It is... More
