We stopped to view the famous renovated Imperial Theatre and were delighted when one of the workers allowed us to enter and appreciate this beautiful facility. They were preparing to put up a new show the following day, so we felt privileged to appreciate the original refurbished chandeliers, the fanciful molding and more.

I just finished watching and listening to the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra. I sat floor level orchestra for the opening and in the balcony for the post intermission. The sound was excellent everywhere. Box seats are available for an extra fee but I didn't like the sight lines, so I can't speak to the wing acoustics.

Went last Friday night to see Ron James! Theatre was packed and Ron didn't disappoint! Great evening out. Ticket prices didn't break the bank. Going back Dec 10 for the Nutcracker!

The Imperial Theatre is a fantastic venue. It offers entertainment for everyone. The staff and volunteers are wonderful and will help you in any way. The theatre is so very beautiful and I am so very happy that a few people had the insight to save it. If you have the opportunity to visit or go to an event there,... More

We attended the Jeremy Hotz comedy show and he was hilarious. The theatre is restored to it's historical beauty with great seating (more room between rows) for excellent stage views. Having attended concerts at the Imperial before, the acoustics are world class. The theatre staff were great with booking and picking up ticket, and the ushers very helpful during the... More
