We caught a Classic Albums Live concert (Bat out of Hell) here in October. The theatre has been beautifully restored (with lots of community support evident). The seats were comfortable. The acoustics were great. There didn't seem to be anywhere with a blocked view. Lobby space l

Great little old theatre but seems like new, this is truly the Gem of Saint John. If in Saint John always check out their web site for shows, great prices and always fun. www.imperialtheatre.nb.ca/

We went and saw a wonderful performance. The actors/actresses were wonderful people from toronto and Saint John and I would reccomend going to the Imperial theatre to anyone. They have shows for young children right through to seniors.
