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.

Friendly staff, great acoustics, we enjoyed seeing a movie on our rainy quiet night. Great atmosphere. Would like to return to see a band playing.

“Saturday night concert ”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 via mobile

Went to see the group Hillsburn. The theater is a great venue. They have a regular Saturday night concert for the summer. Well worth attending. Friendly people made us welcome from buying the tickets to greeting us.

“Wonderful space, and wonderful staff.”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 via mobile

The garrick is a beautiful facility. I love the overall atmosphere. I attend the theatre quite regularly for movies and live performances.

There is comfortable theatre seating in the autorium. Fantastic snacks at the candy bar. It makes movie watching a great experience.

The annex, which is a lounge attached to the theatre. Wonderful space to enjoy a drink and some live entertainment.

“Garrick Theatre”
Reviewed 9 April 2016

This beautiful restored theatre brings world class performances all year round! The Summer Music Series is a force to be reckoned with, seeing performances from some of Canada's best. The staff are second to none, and will make every effort to make sure you enjoy your experience. Make sure you swing by the Annexe during intermission or after the show for a drink. This beautiful room has been restored, and often is a place to meet up with performers after their show. No matter what performance you go see- you won't be disappointed!
