“From a disabled viewpoint...”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Upon arrival parking was convenient and seemed fairly plentiful though we arrived the recommended 45 minutes early. On entering the building it was difficult to find the ramp that lead to the upper lobby area that allowed one into the theatre area. We were shown to our seats but never shown (nor was it mentioned as we passed it) the handicapped washroom nearest us. Instead we made our way back to one near the entrance (we were directed to it though this other was very near our seats). We had front row handicapped and companion seating and found that a portion of what happened on stage was not visible because it was blocked by the side of the stage or by lighting equipment. This was quite disappointing and I do wish they would try to provide some handicapped seating in the first few rows that was not in the `wings`of the theatre. Those were are only negatives at the theatre. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

“Venue, definitely not an attraction”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The Jubilee is just an auditorium. There is nothing particularly special about it, and would definitely not call it an attraction.

“Very nice theatre.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Been to a number of shows and never a bad experiance. Right on the C Train and lots of parking so very accessable. Very modern and well kept theatre with major renovations in the last two years. Good view and audio for the whole theatre.

A very nice place to attend performances.Accoustics were wonderful since their recent renovation.I don't think there is a bad seat in the house now.

“Alberta Ballet - Balletlujah”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The Jubilee has always been the cultural centre for Calgary. The performance done by the Alberta Ballet was well done, and the auditorium was a major part of making the experience complete. Staff are there when you need them.
