Overview

WE'RE A BIG CITY VENUE IN THE HEART OF A SMALL TOWN. The Garrick is a multi-use cultural facility located in the heart of Bonavista. Owned and operated by the Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation, the Garrick boasts comfortable theatre seating for 200, full digital cinema, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and exceptional acoustics ... and that’s just the beginning. Cross the lobby and you’ll find the Annex - a beautifully furnished bar, eatery and intimate performance space. Head upstairs, and you’ll discover our soon-to-be completed conference/event space with room for 100. From Opera to open mic, the Garrick offers a diverse, year-round program of mainstream and indie films, live music, theatre, public lectures, and special events. But The Garrick is more than a cultural and entertainment venue. It’s also a place to go and gather, and to meet friends, old and new. MAKE THE GARRICK PART OF YOUR WORLD. For more information, please visit our Events Calendar or contact us. The box office is open Monday to Friday, 1:00-5:00 p.m., one hour before show time, and online 24/7.

A wonderful refurbished theatre that hosted a wonderful local group, called the Idlers. Lots of foot stomping, toe tapping and dancing in the aisles. Well worth the price of admission.
