Can see everywhere. Still has the small theatre atmosphere where you feel you can almost touch the performers .Comfy seats. The ushers are volunteers and are very friendly and helpful. Just a fun experience.

Take a look at the Grand's show list... it has some of the most exciting and diverse presentations. Professional Music, ballet, comedy, poets and writers plus local productions.

Since the new renovation has been completed the Grand Theatre is wonderful. I just wish it didn't lose so many acts to the KRC which may seat more people but is just a hockey rink and the acoustics are awful, so a band that cares about how they sound more than how much they make should prefer the Grand.

A good variety of programs to choose. After the renovations, Grand Theatre is very comparable to other cities theatres. Very clean, and the staff are very helpful.

Frontenac PP, approximately 45 minutes north of Kingston is one of the nicest wilderness parks in Ontario. The park is threaded with hiking trails, all quite difficult due to the rugged Canadian Shield terrain, but well worth it for the experienced hiker. Check out Frontenac's website for the Frontenac Challenge series of hikes through the park in September and October.
