Owner description: 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.

“Heritage Theatre in a Lovely Historic Town”
Reviewed 21 July 2015

We've attended several live music performances at the Garrick over the past few years and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Originally a movie theatre the facility has been refurbished to accommodate live concerts and theatre. The lobby now features a bar and there are ushers to escort you to your seats. All facilities are totally updated, the seating is very comfortable and sloped to provide a good view of the stage from any location. Our most recent concert featured a very popular folk group called The Once. What a magnificent concert -- beautiful performances, stellar harmonies, all supported by great sound and lighting.

“Great place, Great Acoustics”
Reviewed 14 July 2015

This is a beautiful old theater with magnificent acoustics. Saw the trio 'The Once', this was a perfect venue for their kind of music. Nothing to dislike here...

“Need to see more!”
Reviewed 5 July 2015

We attended a graduation at the Theater and was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful building! Due to our short stay, we will definitely have to come back and take in a show or two!
