Small theater. Older theater but cozy. Not a lot of selection but convenient for people living in Lindsay.

This is a great old style theater venue with fair shows. We enjoy going once and awhile. If you like live entertainment in a heritage setting this is a good choice.

This theatre has old town charm...it has hosted many venues from music to plays, bands, dance,fashion shows, stand up comics etc. The local members and patrons strive to keep it viable as to lose it would be a great loss to the community.

Although the entertainment was superb, thoroughly enjoyable we are sorry to say we did not like the venue at all. We appreciate the historical presence of this theatre,but the seats are so very uncomfortable, (hard, cramped and small) thankfully the music took our minds off...More
