5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Old school theater.

New sound system and the latest projection technology.

Well worth the price of admission.

“nostalgia with the modern twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

this was one MJ O'Briens opera halls converted into a theater.
it still has live shows but has completely restored the interior
chairs are new and comfortable, the snack bar has all the essentials--what more could you ask for

“A wonderful, historic theatre not to be overlooked!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Visit this wonderful old theatre in downtown Renfrew. Afternoon matinees are only $6 per person. The theatre has been beautifully maintained, and it's historic charm is so great -- not a large box store style theatre, but smaller, quaint, a step back to earlier days.

“Astonishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

The historical architecture in this building is amazing. Considering it was left in ruins for many years Mr.Aldoph brought it back to its time. The organ is a masterpiece of its own
