I've seen many shows at this theater. Located in downtown New London, it's easy to find (although good luck finding parking) and surrounded by lots of restaurants- so you can eat before the show! Their entertainment varies to music, plays. dance and even classis movies and shows for children. There is something for everyone!

We went to The Garde last week to see the traveling Broadway show "Jekyll & Hyde". It was spectacular. Talented, enthusiastic and professional actors gave us a great performance. The theater is magnificent, the price for live theater is very reasonable. Don't miss an opportunity to see a show at The Garde. wow.

The revamp on this theatre is amazing! All the hand painting in morroccan style is beautiful. And who doesn't like a glass of wine during the movie? Sitting in the balcony really gives you a great movie experience, but sit on the main floor for live shows.

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.

This grand theater provides an amazing array of entertaining options considering the size of New London. The restored Morrocan decor always makes me smile when I'm there. don't miss it.

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
