Beautiful facility, great acoustics, friendly people, clean washrooms, great concert, one of the nicest things was I didn't feel like I was being gouged at the concession stand. Overall wonderful experience.

“Beautiful Theatre on the Bonavista Peninsula!”

Lots of concerts and movies are held at the Garrick Theatre in Bonavista! The accoustics are fabulous. Snacks and drinks are available during intermission. The price for admission and refreshments is reasonable!

“Best seat in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This theatre offers an amazing lineup of talent as well as movies. A perfect community theatre. The Once performed during the summer series. Only $25 which is very reasonable for local theatre. I'm sure it is wheelchair accessible but I didn't need this service. It has an annex for intermission which is a great place to enjoy a visit with other theatre goers.

“Wonderful room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The Garrick Theatre is a renovated cinema - built in the 40s, it was extensively renovated about five years ago, and re-opened in April 2010. It features current movies on the weekends, year round, using a brand new digital projector. In the summer it presents the Saturday Summer Music Season - Saturday night concerts from mid June to mid September, featuring some of the finest local and provincial talent - it seats 200, and is one of the nicest rooms in the province. It features fully professional lighting and sound systems. As an added bonus, attached to the theatre is the Annex, which has comfortable seating and is fully licensed - it also has a small stage for intimate entertainment.
