If you happen to visit when the theater is open, make sure to take advantage of it. The theater is gorgeous inside, with plush seating. It boggles the mind that Dawson had this during the Gold Rush.

What a spectacular place to be! They have great shows with phenomenal entertainers. You can learn some Canadian history in a way that is fun and always exciting. Dawson City and especially this place really take you back in time!

Stunning. Had a uniquely Canadian experience here during the Dawson Folk Festival. Alex Cuba, singing a Blue Rodeo song, in Spanish, in a hall that took you back to, oh I don't know, 1893? Lovely.

A fascinating historical building straight out of the gold rush era. Well preserved essentially in its original state. Great acoustic.

We enjoyed the 45 minutes guided tour. It felt like going back in time, you can imagine the crowd clapping and stomping their feet while they were watching the performances.

This is a beautiful old theater, originally built in 1899 by "Arizona" Charlie Meadows, and restored more recently. It retains its fabulous acoustics and some interesting nooks and crannies, including the recreated bedroom and sitting area of Klondike Kate. Kate was a popular dancer and the fiancee of theatrical entrepreneur Alexander Pantages until he jilted her and secretly married her... More

Stage show right out of the 1800's. Had a ball. Highly recommended. The casino is pretty laid back with slots and a few card tables.

Parks Canada runs a great and informative tour. Glad we didn't pass on this one as they have re-created the theatre at the height of its glory. Would be so cool to see a show at this venue.
