The balcony seating was uncomfortable for even the children. I am only 5'8" and my legs were in so much pain from having the circulation cut off I was in tears after the performance. Surely this is not safe? What if there was a fire?...More

I was here for Immortal Chi performance on May 28/17. We sat in balcony just to right of stairs, and the acoustics, and view were excellent. It's not a huge theatre but it's an awesome choice for a more intimate style of performance. The drinks...More

I attended a country Christmas music show at the theatre in 2015, and the Nylons in September 2016. I like the size of the theater, and the ease of buying tickets and the atmosphere. Both visits were very enjoyable experiences.

Saw the Country Legends tour and thoroughly enjoyed. Great little theatre which seems to be in the heart of many restaurants. Parking was readily available. Thank you.

We went to see Georgette Fry sing Etta James songs, and were simply blown away! There is not a bad seat in the house, and the acoustics are excellent. I use a hearing aid, which sometimes behaves badly at concerts, but worked perfectly here. The...More

First time at the Grand Theatre and was not disappointed. Many wonderful employees directing you to your seating and loved that you could grab a drink, from the bar and enjoy it while watching the show. Beautiful theatre!!

Always enjoy the Grand as it's large enough of a venue to keep the prices in order, but small enough to not need binoculars to see who is performing. Saw Rodney Carrington last weekend and it was quite a show! Also, the Grand is a...More

Another great show. We have been enjoying the historic Grand Theatre for the 30 years we've lived in Kingston, and especially since the renovation. Kingston is so lucky to have such an eclectic group of performance theatres from local bars, the KRock, Queen's, the Isabel...More
