“THEATRE VISIT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Recently visited this theatre to see a play. Nice venue, well maintained with lot of history. Now the negatives. No draught beers on sale only bottles or cans. Confectionary on sale expensive. (Take your own in). Small tub of ice cream £4!
No parking in vicinity of theatre so get there early to find somewhere.

“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I have been going to the Sunderland Empire for many years, since I was a little girl and I just love the place. It is well maintained and a fab place to see a show, concert, play. I will continue to return. My fave seats being front stalls, slipper or dress circle. I did once sit in the Upper circle and it was far too high for me so i havent even tried the Gods! haha. Definitely worth a visit if you have never been to this venue.

“mouse trap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

On Wednesday I went to see Agatha Christies Mouse Trap and I wasn't disappointed...it was brilliant, some superb acting, it was like watching a movie...the only thing that bugged me was the bar prices...they were ridiculous...outrageous, I will def know for next time to steer clear.

“Beautiful old theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Excellent view of the show from our seats in the dress circle.
An old but well preserved theatre with a lovely atmosphere.
Dislike the extortionate prices of ice-creams (not just here - in all theatres) £3 for a small tub is outrageous!
