Rated 4.6 out of 5

4 Star Rating Nice place. The place can get confusing with the washrooms and exits in different places. The theatre is top notch and we had a good view even from far up in the balcony.

5 Star Rating Roy Thompson Hall is a beautiful landmark from the outside, unfortunately the interior design is not that impressive. I went there for a screening during TIFF2017 which was a fantastic experience. And as far as I can tell the acoustics are great and the stage is quite big.

5 Star Rating Can't beat the under 30 tickets Made very accessible to all and state of the art hall. Excellent musicians all year round plus big names in addition to tso They do call you on occasion to be a donor but they can take you off the list.

4 Star Rating We were there for the Toronto Sweets Festival outside on the grounds. So many yummy treats being sold and sampled. I have been in the building for concerts in the past and it is lovely with amazing acoustics and actually fairly comfortable seats and I love the modern architecture of the building design. It really is one of Toronto's jewels.

5 Star Rating The architecture and design of Roy Thompson is amazing. Breathtaking Beautiful place! They really make you feel at home and welcome with complimentary tea, coffee and water. A little nice gesture can go a long way. If your visiting at night make sure you go outside to the park next door to capture some pictures. Looks amazing at night! Great venue!! Very clean and lots of helpful staff.
