For someone coming from the 'burbs, driving downtown is daunting. But the Roy Thompson Hall is pretty conveniently located, with ample street (meter) parking all around it, as well as underground parking. There are lots of restaurants around it, so you can easily do a dinner and a show. The hall itself is pretty small so you really can't get... More

Plenty of parking. The acoustics in the hall have to be heard to be believed. Literally, there is not a bad chair in the house - and the chairs are comfortable. The only complaint is that it takes an inordinate amount of time to get out of the venue.

Since they used it to film the original X-Men movie it's a certain cachet, non? I've enjoyed every visit, and the sound quality is something else. Be sure to choose a performance that's your kind of thing-- I even saw Bill Cosby there once, so there's something for almost everyone.

Disclaimer: I love the Toronto Symphony and have season tickets with a friend. I love going there as it is very interesting architecturally with "open walls" showing splendid views of the surrounding area and, of course the higher up you go, the more you see of Toronto. The things I dislike about it are minor but can be quite a... More

Both Massey and Roy Thompson Halls are the absolute best concert & performance halls in the City of Toronto. Acoustics sans comparison.

I had the pleasure of attending a beautiful classical music concert this evening, Saturday, October 19, 2013. It is part of my four-concert series called Light Classics. These concerts are held at Roy Thomson Hall, in the heart of downtown Toronto. Roy Thomson Hall is an excellent venue in which to hold concerts, of any musical genre. The acoustics are... More

I've been a season ticket holder at RTH for over 10 years, so I envision joining the crowds of elders that seem to make up most of their audiences. That's a good feeling, because the Toronto Symphony Orchestra just keeps getting better and better. The TSO has had its rough patches, we all know that. Under its current direction it... More

With all that renovation, nice wood, improved acoustics, you'd think they might have added another men's room to supplement the Stygian basement cubicle the original architectural team thought would be sufficient. lovers of high culture sometimes need to visit that little room at intermission.

Have seen many concerts at this venue, sat in a variety of seats and it this venue has never failed to impress. Since its acoustical upgrade just over a decade ago, concerts have become an intimate affair on both the ears and soul. Bringing world class entertainment in here as well as its sister venue, Massey Hall, it is well... More
