Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Maybe because it was the type of event we attended, but it I was underwhelmed. Needed a booster seat and no one was working the coat check. Had to go look for someone to help me. Was surprised as it was a family event. Friendly staff :)

The Jubilee was recently renovated. It is a great prairie city performance hall. The accoustics are great and most seats offer good sight line to the stage.

The Auditorium has plenty of parking and is serviced by the Light Rail Transit (LRT) system. It should have more women's bathrooms and water fountains.

The name says it all: Julbilee...a place where one is emancipated from the drudgery of the mediocre, a place where there can be restoration for the soul. A graduation ceremony, a concert, a musical, a sacred service...the Jubilee is the must-do venue for events that must be heard as well as seen. Expect excellence; save perfection for heaven. Expect hospitable care; save personal care for butlers. Whether one comes by train or by car, on foot or by bus, the Jubilee is convenient for all sorts of guests. From the instant you step into the demure hush of the lobby until you find your seat in locations that give you what your money has afforded you, the pilgrimage to a place of sensory lavishness is worth the first step. Guests around me muttered phrases of hushed awe,"I feel like I'm somewhere in Europe", "Doesn't this feel classy?" to enthusiastic applause, in part because of the skillful acoustics that decorously assisted the performance. Calgarians should be proud of this place...I am.

Auditorium far too large for a good entertainment experience, acoustics are abysmal, balcony too far from the action for good viewing. That doesn't stop people from flooding this venue -- one of 2 main snob-appeal performance venues in Calgary for the those with Artistic Aspirations. Doesn't matter who's playing -- save your $$$ & just buy the recording. Example: Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook played to packed house mid-Dec 2013; he's a fabulous musician with a great band + magnetic stage persona, yet sound qual & overall audience experience dreadful, sorry Jesse. Ticket price for that fiasco -- $73.50. This venue is mostly habituated by pushy snobby no-talent parents who want their kids to study the viola.

The seating and acoustics were fantastic. We saw The Nutcraker here in December and I thought that the venue was fantastic for layout and ease of seating. It was really hot in there though so it made it a little hard to concentrate at times and good luck getting anything to drink at intermission, you basically choose between using the washroom or getting a drink. All in all it was a good night. I would love to see a concert here.
