Has top rate performances in a lovely theatre. You really can't get a bad seat, though my favorite is front row balcony.

Went with a friend and saw the naughty version of Aladdin - The Panto. It was a great time by all. Only negative is that I did not find the Theatre very handicap accessible. Not bad if you use a cane, but not with a walker.

Excellent final performance. Mr Gilly and his band (many of which have performed with him since he started performing) put on a great show portraying the high lights of his long career.

Canadian singer song-writer Randy Bachman of Guess Who and BTO fame was fascinating. The musicians with him were excellent. Learned a lot about the man and the songs. The Empire theatre in Belleville has live acts, movies and recently hosted a fundraiser for Fort McMurray. This was our second visit. Excellent views from any seats, last time balcony, this time...
