The acoustics are great.

The theatre has been restored to its historic beauty and the owner, a musician himself, takes great care to book really good entertainers. In addition, this venue also hosts the Quinte Film Alternative, a weekly Wednesday opportunity for movie buffs to view some of the less-known but truly entertaining features. The Empire is a good local citizen, frequently volunteering to host community events.

The Empire Theatre is sort of an old-fashioned, red velvet curtain theatre that I understand was tapped for destruction at one time. Now it is a brilliant performing arts center that attracts name acts from around the world. There is a small bar on the ground floor and a slightly larger one upstairs so you can grab a glass of wine before your show. A number of good restaurants are in close walking distance. The theatre itself is a little jewel box with comfortable seats and all have a great view of the stage. Acoustics are excellent. I've been to the Empire several times and thoroughly enjoyed myself each time.

We traveled to Belleville, Ontario from Richmond, VA just to attend the Empire Beatles weekend in Oct. 2013. What a fabulous weekend of music and fun. The acoustics and comfort of the theater were some of the best we have ever experienced. Kudos to Mark the owner and one of the band members for hosting this wonderful event for us at his fabulous theater. We also attended the breakfast that was hosted there. What a great time, great service, great people and music. We will definitely be back!

Once again a smashing success with Beatles knockoff bands from the U.S. and Canada. These bands are damn good and their impression and music just terrific. Some dress and look like the Beatles and will try and do the hits as the Beatles themselves did. Other bands give their own twist on familiar toons.
