Great theatre

Listened to a guest speaker in the theatre. Very comfortable seats, able to hear the speaker well, and a nice entrance way.

What a shame it wasn't full. We saw a great concert here. Reasonable price. A treat for me and my teen. A pity it is starting to look a little old but it is open and a landmark. Loads of seats, all looked like fine viewing.

The seats are comfortable. Before and after the show and during intermission there is a wide variety of beverages. There is also the 'Musique Boutique' selling great merchandise with a definite 'boutique' flavour.

To save this old theatre from bankruptcy and, perhaps, demolition, the City of Windsor took it over and gave it to the Windsor Symphony Orchestra as a permanent home. It is probably a good venue for theatre and small concerts (there are actually two theatres in the building) and, despite a wonderful addition of an acoustic shell on the stage,... More

Windsor in Ontario sadly, is not a city that looks after or, seems to care a great deal about its heritage. With the exception of small pockets in this city where one can still see, wonderful old houses and buildings that have managed to remain standing, one only has to drive through the city to realise the destruction that has...
