Attended a couple Art Battles recently and looked around - the place needs a facelift badly. The facilities, such as the bar, stage and washroom looks like they've seen better days.

Have attended a variety of entertainment venues over the years. Tickets are reasonable and can be obtained on line. This building once housed a church. A micro brewery called Brimstone is now located downstairs so local beers brewed on site can be had.

You can not beat this place for entertainment and value. I do not go as much as I would like to. You can see venues for a fraction of the price you would pay else where. Plus they have the brewery Brimstone's down stairs. It...More

Great shows in a lovely venue! I have attended everything from rock concerts to art festivals to casual dinners and have always been inspired by the beautiful building, the simple elegant interior and the very professional (yet also community minded) management. The Sanctuary and Brimstone...More
