Owner description: WE'RE A BIG CITY VENUE IN THE HEART OF A SMALL TOWN. The Garrick is a multi-use cultural facility located in the heart of Bonavista. Owned and operated by the Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation, the Garrick boasts comfortable theatre seating for 200, full digital cinema, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and exceptional acoustics ... and that’s just the beginning. Cross the lobby and you’ll find the Annex - a beautifully furnished bar, eatery and intimate performance space. Head upstairs, and you’ll discover our soon-to-be completed conference/event space with room for 100. From Opera to open mic, the Garrick offers a diverse, year-round program of mainstream and indie films, live music, theatre, public lectures, and special events. But The Garrick is more than a cultural and entertainment venue. It’s also a place to go and gather, and to meet friends, old and new. MAKE THE GARRICK PART OF YOUR WORLD. For more information, please visit our Events Calendar or contact us. The box office is open Monday to Friday, 1:00-5:00 p.m., one hour before show time, and online 24/7.

“Beautiful restored theatre”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Just did another show at the Garrick. Kelly Ann Evans--Music of Rod Stewart. Excellent. Great sound. Super atmosphere. Great prices. So far this year, we have also seen The Once (awesome group). Their local talent performances are not to be missed. BS (Brian Little and Steve Abbot) last night as openers were as good as it gets. If you are visiting Bonavista, CHECK IT OUT. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful facility, great acoustics, friendly people, clean washrooms, great concert, one of the nicest things was I didn't feel like I was being gouged at the concession stand. Overall wonderful experience.

“Beautiful Theatre on the Bonavista Peninsula!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Lots of concerts and movies are held at the Garrick Theatre in Bonavista! The accoustics are fabulous. Snacks and drinks are available during intermission. The price for admission and refreshments is reasonable!

“Best seat in town”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This theatre offers an amazing lineup of talent as well as movies. A perfect community theatre. The Once performed during the summer series. Only $25 which is very reasonable for local theatre. I'm sure it is wheelchair accessible but I didn't need this service. It has an annex for intermission which is a great place to enjoy a visit with other theatre goers.
