This is an older venue for a more intimate performance experience. A great location for stage plays. We have enjoyed ourselves each time we have had the opportunity to attend a performance in this house.

This older theater is well built and comfortable. With exits on lower and upper levels it is easy to leave at end of performance. Good few of shows from any seat in theater. First two rows you have to look up to see action.

A beautiful theatre. Not a bad seat in the house. The village of Niagara on the Lake offers the plays of George Bernard Shaw every summer. If you enjoy witty repartee in an intimate theatre space, please visit. The actors were fantastic because you can...More

NOTL has lots of parking in this case we parked on the street about two blocks from the theater, but the municipal parking is plentiful and priced right.
