From the moment you enter the theater is grandeur and ornate feel brings delight to all your senses. A fantastic venue for the city to be proud of and showcase.

An evening with Lawrence Hill. Nicely organised, gorgeous theatre. The sound system needs tweaking but the evening was fantastic. The music in the lobby was invigorating. Book signing well-organised and gracious. Lovely evening and enchanting venue.

Listened to a guest speaker in the theatre. Very comfortable seats, able to hear the speaker well, and a nice entrance way.
