“Nice Facility”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Wonderful place for community shows or more professional shows. No bad seats. Great accoustics. Manned by volunteers. Has a bar downstairs with good pricing, for intermission or pre show juice, pop, wine or beer, coat check and nice clean bathrooms.
Seat are comfortable athough could use a little more leg room for my 6'3" husband.

“Every seat in the house is great!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Showplace is wonderful. If the show is in the Lounge, it's up close and personal. If it's on the main stage the seats are comfortable, the sound is great and the quality of shows is impressive. I love going to Showplace. Always a great night out!

“Dance Competition”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Not set up well for dance competition. The change rooms are too small, have HORRIBLE lighting and the bathrooms smelled bad.

“Top Notch Entertainment and More”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Showplace is one of the area's premier entertainment venues hosting everything from concerts to films to speakers. Originally an old movie theatre, the building under went a huge renovation to make it one of the most luxurious soft seaters in the province. Everyone from the Tragically Hip to Tommy Hunter have graced its stage. When in the area check their website for shows.
