We watched Home Alone presented by the TSO. It was incredible. Only downside...We bought seats near the front and had to look up the entire time...the screen is down stage and not up stage.....definitely recommend sitting further back or first row in the balconies. Drinks allowed inside

Pretty good venue, good seating and good acoustics. Been here a couple of time to see orchestral stuff. There is parking on the south side of the block, underground, so this is nice and convenient. The building is quite interesting, lots of concrete and glass. Good intimate venue, but none of the scale and grandeur of somewhere like Harpa in Reykjavik. The worst part, and the reason for not giving 5 stars, is that it's a real pain to get to now, unless you live within walking distance. We drove through gridlock trying to get in, and all the roads were still jammed at 10pm when we left. Allow plenty of time if you have to navigate the awful downtown Toronto traffic.

First time at this venue. Attended Beauty and the Bizarre. Would attend another venue here since sound, seating, etc was all very good

We attended a concert during Remembrance day . The concert was nice but little too long for my taste. Hour is good enough, the last hour i was restless especially when the music is monotone . But I liked the words as they could see them on the screen. Very poetic.

The venue is acoustically good. It's got near 360 seating which gives a lot of viewing angles of the musicians. The seats are comfortable, not too tightly positioned. It was built in a very modern style at the time, so I suppose it's showing its age that way. This is not to say that it isn't well-maintained. It's quite clean and bright. Lastly, I found the myriad doors, ramps and stairways somewhat confusing. But it made my trip to the restroom an adventure.
