“The Lion King”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

Theatre was beautiful, show was amazing, highly recommended.

There was lots of parking around which we hadn't expected so had prepaid for parking $12 and the same car park they booked us in to was only $10 to turn up and park at!

“Nostalgia at her best”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

This theatre is beautiful and well kept with a lot of things too do within walking distance whether waiting for a show to start or looking for dinner after the matinée. Seats are surprisingly generous given that older theatres seats are notorious for being unbearably narrow ; and as long as you're not further 5 rows back on the mezzanine level there really is no bad seats in the theatre in my opinion.

“Love this theater ”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

I have been here to see shows over six times and loved it every time.
Beautiful theater with good shows. I have never bought seats in the upper second level but have walked up there and it looks like the view of the stage would be good. The view of the ceiling is great from the second level just walk up there during the intermission and have a look. Long lines for the restroom and bar when intermission hits be quick. Lots of parking for about $10.00 in lots nearby.

“A wonderful theater experience”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

The old, but wonderfully refurbished theater is a delight to visit. Go early to get available parking and avoid the traffic and have lunch or dinner nearby. The W Hotel is right across the street and Delphine's restaurant in the hotel is terrific!

I took my two grandsons to see The Lion King and they loved the whole experience.
