For being an old theater it was not disappointing. I loved how beautiful it was inside and I felt like I was in the old days. I sat on the boucane level and it was an amazing view.

I’m a theater buff and I must admit this is the most beautiful theater I have been to in my life. The ceiling is a sky with stars... it transforms your experience to feel that you are outside. Just love this place!
