This is absolutely the best place to enjoy a film. It is state of the art digital with incredible surround sound. Once you see a film here you won't go anywhere else. The stage shows are awesome. Great talent and presentation.

This Arts Center is a beautiful place to attend great plays, symphonies or just a movie. It's located in downtown New London and there are also great restaurants nearby to start off or end the event.

I love going to The Garde during the Christmas season, as they always decorate with style and grace, just beautiful. I took my ten year old daughter and four... More

Went to the Manhattan short film fest this time. I have been before and the theatre is visually interesting, chairs comfortable and aisle knee space wide enough. They offer a great venue that is convenient and provides a good view from your seat and sound. The staff are nice and patrons range from elderly with walkers, families, to teens and... More

This venue was PERFECT for the event I attended, the Miss Connecticut America Pageant. Absolutely gorgeous interior. My crew of 8 were seated in the Loge with perfect views. Beautiful snack areas as well. Parking is on street or at a garage (charged $5 for this event) around the corner.

Broadway shows, movies, debates and lectures, ballet, opera, Eastern CT Symphony and other musical events are just of a few of the things happening... More
