This theatre has been around for awhile but is still very comfortable and well maintained. The acoustics are good and good viewing opportunities from most locations in the theatre. There are a few seats that are in need of repair but they are well marked so shouldn't be a problem with people choosing a broken chair. Spacious concession stand with a small lobby, more standing room for those intermission breaks in an enclosed area with plenty of glass for observing the outside. And for those who need a smoke break, there is a very pleasant garden type courtyard immediately outside the lobby. Restrooms are clean and very spacious. Parking is available behind the theater.

Thanks for taking time to review Algonquin Arts Theatre!

We're currently fundraising to upgrade the seats through naming opportunities. Original to the theatre when it was build in 1938, the seats were re-upholstered when the movie theatre was upgraded to host performing arts events in the early 1990s. Feel free to call our Box Office for more information!
