“Classy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

We went to a concert there in May, 2012. I have not been to many theaters but this was beautiful. It seemed rather grand, like something out of a movie. Sound was great, seats were comfortable though not much leg room.

It is a beautiful theatre very well kept. They have very good shows of all different types. Just to be in the building makes you feel good.

Great restoration! Concerts, ballets, CBC, singers, dancers, even some bands. Royal Theatre has seen it all.
