Owner description: WE'RE A BIG CITY VENUE IN THE HEART OF A SMALL TOWN. The Garrick is a multi-use cultural facility located in the heart of Bonavista. Owned and operated by the Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation, the Garrick boasts comfortable theatre seating for 200, full digital cinema, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and exceptional acoustics ... and that’s just the beginning. Cross the lobby and you’ll find the Annex - a beautifully furnished bar, eatery and intimate performance space. Head upstairs, and you’ll discover our soon-to-be completed conference/event space with room for 100. From Opera to open mic, the Garrick offers a diverse, year-round program of mainstream and indie films, live music, theatre, public lectures, and special events. But The Garrick is more than a cultural and entertainment venue. It’s also a place to go and gather, and to meet friends, old and new. MAKE THE GARRICK PART OF YOUR WORLD. For more information, please visit our Events Calendar or contact us. The box office is open Monday to Friday, 1:00-5:00 p.m., one hour before show time, and online 24/7.

enjoyed the Navigators. Snacks were the most reasonably priced of any theatre we've attended.

“You have to do the dinner before the show!!! or just the dinner!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The pre-show dinner prepared by chef Katie Hayes, is a fantastic fresh taste of the best food you will taste in Bonavista, and possibly in the province.

We had the freshest of cod, nicely prepared with a great salad, vegetables and wonderful bread. The bread is baked at the Bonavista Social Club, a bakery and restaurant operated by Katie and her husband Shane.

The warm blueberry bread pudding was a perfect ending to the meal.

“CT Yankee in NL says:”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Beautifully restored theatre with old-world charm. Comfortable seats, great acoustics. Saw Ron Rynes' performance last summer and will go again this July. This facility should attract talent that one might otherwise have to drive to St. John's to experience. A Must Do on anyone's list.
