WE'RE A BIG CITY VENUE IN THE HEART OF A SMALL TOWN. The Garrick is a multi-use cultural facility located in the heart of Bonavista. Owned and operated by the Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation, the Garrick boasts comfortable theatre seating for 200, full digital cinema, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and exceptional acoustics ... and that’s just the beginning. Cross the lobby and you’ll find the Annex - a beautifully furnished bar, eatery and intimate performance space.

From Opera to open mic, the Garrick offers a diverse, year-round program of mainstream and indie films, live music, theatre, public lectures, and special events.

A nice theatre in the center of Bonavista. Within walking distance of a number of accommodations with restaurants in the area. Comfortable seats and a concession stand and bar.

Like most of Bonavista, the Garrick 'needs a coat of paint' among other things. Parking is terrible. Went to see a concert and the opening musician sat behind a music stand. Couldn't even see his face. The rest of the talent were constantly tuning instruments...More

Watched a screening of Relative Happiness film. Director attended for a Q and A. Excellent venue. Licenced. Comfortable setting. Gives those of us who haven't been able to attend TIFF or other film festivals a wonderful, accessible sampling of what that experience is like.

Didn't get to see a performance but the staff gave us a tour of the beautiful restored theatre. Worth a look if in the area.
