“Live theatre in Kingston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

The Grand Theatre has two venues: A large auditorium and a smaller and more intimate 80-seat room. Both are good, for different purposes. The large auditorium hosts musicals, visiting musicians, comedians, and other large-scale shows. The smaller one has more intimate, and often experimental, theatre. Sight-lines are good; the shows vary, so take a look at what's on and choose what interests you.

It doesn't seem to make a difference WHAT you see here, the place is so beautiful, it is worth a one-time visit. You'd never know from it's unpretentious, street view what a surprisingly spectacular interior awaits!

“Great acoustics, lovely atmosphere always great performances!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

My husband and I have seen Jill Barber in concert here and the Vogue Fashion show presented by Queen's students, it was recently renovated and it is a very classy place to go for a night out; prices are reasonable.

“Surprisingly good venu and entertainment offerings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

After a lengthy and expensive rebuild, the Grand can now stand proudly as an exciting venu for even some very exacting productions.Unfortunately, ticket prices have risen rather dramatically over the years, which makes one rather more selective in their choice of attendance.
