Rated 4.6 out of 5Roy Thomson Hall Star Rating

4 Star Rating Had a chance to catch Star Wars in concert. It is an excellent venue. The sound completely envelopes you. I also love the design. The only problem was access to the bathrooms, as someone with a disability it was difficult going up and down all those stairs to get to the bathroom (and I didn't see any signage for anything close). The line-ups were quite long during intermission. Some people were just getting to the top of the stairs and the bells rang. Perhaps you could extend the intermission time a few more minutes when it is very busy? Apart from that, it was a fun event! I really enjoyed myself.

5 Star Rating Gorgeous exterior and interior. Wide selection of performances, well suited to the performance venue with superb acoustics. Gem of Toronto. Staff was accommodating for those with injuries or disabilities. As well as late comers to performances. Enjoyed a great night out.

4 Star Rating Good place for entertainment. I went there for TIFF and TIFF uses the venue annually. It is mostly very crowded during the TIFF season, but if there is no events, it is not busy at all. The place might be a good place to walk around as a tourist. Many features are all in walking distance.

5 Star Rating Super amazing place with great accessibility and nearby cheap parking spots. Staff are very friendly. Sound quality is very good, probably could be heard better on Mezzanine. Air quality and odor in the hall could also get improved.

5 Star Rating Toronto symphony orchestra is very talented. The acoustics in the hall are amazing. Lots of parking available below the hall even on concert nights and easily accessible by subway if you want to avoid driving. Lots of ushers all over the place to help you get where you need to go and find your seat. They're also equipped to show movies along with orchestra for live soundtrack type shows.
