Went to two comedy nights at the QE this past week. the acoustics are not bad. the seats in the dress circle are much more comfy then the seats in the orchestra. so go with the DC. the sound, lighting and lobby services are all first rate.

We traveled to Vancouver for a concert at QE Theatre, and there wasn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics, were amazing. We loved the concert and the venue! Very easy to get from our Robson Street Hotel to the theatre, felt safe downtown, it was overall a great experience.

Good sized venue, modern with nice decor, great for pretty much any performance. (minor quibble: women's washrooms down a couple levels)

I was fortunate enough to see The Loin King here and it was fantastic. The Theatre is gorgeous that has nice lay out. The Bar is conveniently located directly in the doors, although it is a bit small it makes for an Internet setting.

I've been to Queen Elizabeth theatre for quite a few times for concerts and shows. The seats are comfortable and can easily get here (skytrain or drive).

Almost 2 hours of total fun. They use any number of different type of objects to make noise, and the effect is quite neat. I assume the performers are all dancers because of the movement they do - the whole experience was great!

When I was studying theatre (many years ago) I was lucky enough to be able to do a tour of the theatre itself and if you get an opportunity to do this go for it. Lots to see from the catwalk to the green rooms. Over the years I have been to many productions here and am always impressed. Most... More

Saw Romeo and Juliet in February 2014. bathroom line between intermission is pretty lengthy extending into the hallway. Theatre has a modern feel to it. We took a taxi from Frankie's kitchen after having dinner here. Lots of taxis near theatre exit. We took one back to the hotel. The next February, we came and took a friend along with... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
