I went on a school field trip to the Imperial Theatre during the year of it's grand reopening in 1994. I was 10 years old and I still remember looking up in awe at the huge chandelier! The amazing acoustics and beautiful architecture make every concert or show an amazing and unique experience. I wish there were more shows there... More

It looks, feels and sounds like a Classic Victorian theatre. The acoustics are excellent, the seats are comfortable, though there's not much knee room if you're close to six feet tall. There is an eclectic series of concerts and shows to choose from - usually running for a few days, but sometimes just a single performance. If you want to... More

Amazing acoustics and no volume required... Grand detail and ornate accents are just the beginning here. The quality of the sound produced whether you are enjoying your favorite singer or Broadway play will leave you in awe!

The Imperial started off in it's hayday as a Theatre, and then it became the Full Gospel Assembly which this Pentecostal Church had for several decades preserving it's history for when it was sold back to the city and refurbished back to it's former glory.

The Imperial Theatre is not pretentious from the outside, but quite beautiful in its interior. It has maintained its old world décor and ambiance, and we are very fortunate to have it situated in the heart of Saint John. It draws a wide range of entertainment, and in comparison to what large city patrons pay to go to live theatre,... More

Went to the Imperial Theater to watch Dracula tonight. The theater itself is beautiful with all the gold leaf ornamentation. It has been beautifully maintained. So glad it survived! Since this is Halloween week, people were dressed in costume to watch the movie which was fun. The theater has a vintage movie series where they show a movie from a... More
