This was my first time in this theatre. I was impressed with the coat check, bar and the waiting entrance as it was spacious and plenty of spaces to sit while waiting. The theatre itself does not have a bad seat. My only complaint would...More

I visited this intimate theatre on my last night in Calgary and watched a wonderful performance on Macbeth. The performance was great and the environment welcoming.
