We were pleasantly surprised that there was local entertainment at the Garrick Annex during our stay. The tickets were very reasonable (under $10 each) as were the wine/beer prices. It's a comfortable little venue and a nice way to pass an evening in beautiful Bonavista.

It is imperative you know something about the history on Newfoundland to understand this recounting of stories. Very sad but truthful past.

There was a group on when we went and we really enjoyed the evening. Some of the theatre productions would be wonderful to see

This building alone has so much history. It's like a step back in time to simpler days but yet it's idea for today and this community.

A nice theatre in the center of Bonavista. Within walking distance of a number of accommodations with restaurants in the area. Comfortable seats and a concession stand and bar.

Like most of Bonavista, the Garrick 'needs a coat of paint' among other things. Parking is terrible. Went to see a concert and the opening musician sat behind a music stand. Couldn't even see his face. The rest of the talent were constantly tuning instruments...More

Very attractive theater with just around 200 seats. All seats offer an excellent view of the stage. We saw a live band play Beatles hits and it was exceptional - theater acoustics were great. While we did not use it, the annex looked to be...More

Watched a screening of Relative Happiness film. Director attended for a Q and A. Excellent venue. Licenced. Comfortable setting. Gives those of us who haven't been able to attend TIFF or other film festivals a wonderful, accessible sampling of what that experience is like.
