If you live here or are coming to visit, you owe it to yourself to take... More

This theatre is the best in Saint John New Brunswick. I have danced in production numbers there and gone to many events. Every seat is comfortable and it is difficult to have a bad seat. There are balcony seats as well. Price of tickets are generally reasonable.

We saw Classic Albums Live perform Pink Floyd The Wall, and it was excellent. The theatre is beautifully restored and the sound was very good.

I went to the theatre for the Gordon Lightfoot concert. The concert hall is amazing and full of history, and it has great acoustics to compliment it as well. The only nitpick is that it does seem a little small.

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
