Lots of concerts and movies are held at the Garrick Theatre in Bonavista! The accoustics are fabulous. Snacks and drinks are available during intermission. The price for admission and refreshments is reasonable!

This theatre offers an amazing lineup of talent as well as movies. A perfect community theatre. The Once performed during the summer series. Only $25 which is very reasonable for local theatre. I'm sure it is wheelchair accessible but I didn't need this service. It...More

Beautifully restored theatre with old-world charm. Comfortable seats, great acoustics. Saw Ron Rynes' performance last summer and will go again this July. This facility should attract talent that one might otherwise have to drive to St. John's to experience. A Must Do on anyone's list.
