“Professional production venue”
Review of The Empire Theatre

The Empire Theatre
Ranked #1 of 31 things to do in Belleville
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a top flight venue for virtually any event, concert, or theatrical production you could imagine - I am looking to workshop a Broadway Musical in 2015 and never considered a venue outside of Toronto until Bill - the former publisher of the local newspaper - who is running for mayor of Belleville - made a serious pitch right there on the sidewalk - The Empire Theatre is now on my top 3 list.
I wish Toronto's mayor was working as hard - but I understand he is tied up with his crack rehab.

It is a beautifully restored theatre and it brings many live performances to Belleville. The website is excellent as it show all events, including live events and movie showings.

I like this place and it is really nice and super clean inside. More catered to older people that have extra money. Have been to a few concerts here and I would prefer to stand at a table or bar when watching a rock concert. Saw Grady here a few years ago who really rocked but it sucks to sit down and not have beer service inside the theatre. Movies here are alright but the selection again is more catered to old people. Saw a comedy show here once and it was also good.

Best sound anywhere as long as the entertainer doesn't bring a board and technician! Seats could be a bit more solid. The outdoor venue is great for special summer concerts.
