“Excellent Facility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Always clean & the concession is run very well with reasonable prices during events.
We usually visit for the Collectible & Antiques Shows and it is always a pleasure.

“Acoustics at Mary Winspear”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The acoustics at Mary Winspear are amazing, I have been to several plays and the sound is better than the Royal Theater in Victoria.

“Charlie White Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Lots of good shows (both local and travelling) and not a bad seat in the house. Always something going on. Get parked early as it's not a big lot.

“Decorated Christmas trees and photo exhibit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Large centre, no staff when we were there, but the trees decorated by local businesses were very attractive (visitors were asked to vote and leave a $2 donation for the food bank). We got some interesting ideas and "how to's". Also enjoyed the local photography club exhibit "People at Work". The building was very clean, washrooms accessible, and we peaked into the small theatre although there were no events scheduled. Only problem - no hours posted on the outside doors, so we had no idea when they would open - we came back later, and were glad we did.
