“Saw Russell Brand - a great night”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We've seen numerous shows at the Jubilee. Parking is good, and it is easy to get to. Takes a bit of time to get out after the show, but traffic is directed and everyone polite.

“Great acoustics”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Love to attend events here. Comfortable seats & great acoustics. Only criticism is if you sit near the top/back, if its a warm day outside, it can get uncomfortably warm in there.

“First Class Facility”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We attended here for the production of Les Miserables on July 6, 2013. Knowing nothing about this auditorium, I was thoroughly impressed by its design, cleanliness, functionality, seating, acoustics and amenities. It rivals any Toronto facility - and we were not crushed into our seats. Leg room was evident and the exits were plentiful and easy to access. Washrooms were modern and food and drink were available throughout. Comfortable and sleek chairs allowed for a comfortable wait for those who arrived early. I did not see the parking area as we walked there, but the facility is near the CTrain.
The production itself - fantastic. Aaron Walpole (of Canadian Idol fame) portrayed Jean Valjean (instead of Peter Lockyer) and Aaron was terrific. The sound was excellent as were all aspects of the stage production. Bring some Kleenex - you will need it!!

“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.
