A piece of Lindsay history and a wonderful venue for music or plays. I have enjoyed both types of entertainment at this restored to it's original state theatre.

the acoustics are out of the world for a building so old
the academy theater has it's own ghost!!! no kidding !!! the history is well worth the visit

“Wonderful theatre experience every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Going to the Academy Theatre for anything, whether it be a play, a musical, a ballet performance or a concert is always a wonderful experience. We have been to many events here and have always enjoyed it immensely. There is not a bad seat in the house; the very history of the place makes it a magical venue. When you're there, take your seat and then just look up! The architecture of the building is lovely.
I would recommend the Academy to everyone, whether you're from out of town or live in the area. Make sure you experience this grand place!

“Quaint Theatre, Wonderful Venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I have been to several events at the Academy Theatre, and the venue is fabulous! It is restored to its original spleandour, and no matter where your seat, the view of the stage and the sound is superior. If there is an event going on that you are interested in attending, this quaint theatre is a wonderful place to check it out!
