This venue is remarkable! The ornate design of this building is worth the visit alone. Built during another era it retains some of the dignity and grace of a bygone day. The staff (largely volunteers) are friendly and cheerful and make you feel both welcome and comfortable. We have come down from Langley BC for several performances this season and,... More

We just attended a Joan Baez concert at the Mt. Baker Theatre...it was FABULOUS!!! Joan's music and presence on stage was amazing!! BUT without the acoustic design of theatre it would have been just "okay"!! I love this theatre and the interior is beyond beautiful...built in the 1920's it still retains that "old style" beauty. The acoustics are amazing...the lighting... More

This is a wonderful theatre, beautifully maintained and a real art-deco period piece. Comfortable seating with good views from the balcony. Friendly and helpful staff.

As a season ticket holder we get top performers and after the shows we are home within a half an hour. No need to travel for 2 hours to Seattle and hunt for parking. Last year we had Steve Martin plus wonderful shows. This year we have Joan Baez ,Capitol Steps, Mama Mia etc. This great Theatre was built in... More

The Mt. Baker theatre is a work of art and well worth a visit to se the old fashioned opulent interior. However, we attended a play in the adjacent Walton theatre - The Last of the Red Hot Lovers by Neil Simon. The play was excellently acted and we were pleasantly surprised by the very high quality of this summer... More

Beautiful venue that seats about 1500 people. It felt intimate yet large enough to give you space. Good views from every seat. Besides the historic moulding and grand chandeliers, MBT is actually a not-for-profit organization. This is a great concept since as British Columbians, we pay WAY too much for quality shows. MBT has affordable tickets. TIP: come early to... More
