First time at the Grand Theatre and was not disappointed. Many wonderful employees directing you to your seating and loved that you could grab a drink, from the bar and enjoy it while watching the show. Beautiful theatre!!

Always enjoy the Grand as it's large enough of a venue to keep the prices in order, but small enough to not need binoculars to see who is performing.
Saw Rodney Carrington last weekend and it was quite a show!
Also, the Grand is a part of the Kingston legacy and it's always nice to support something that has always supported our area.

Another great show.
We have been enjoying the historic Grand Theatre for the 30 years we've lived in Kingston, and especially since the renovation.
Kingston is so lucky to have such an eclectic group of performance theatres from local bars, the KRock, Queen's, the Isabel and local churches.
But we love the intimacy of the Grand and the variance in performers.
Last night we thoroughly enjoyed Chantal Kreviazuk, but have enjoyed plays, musicals and many artists from Jill Barber to Blue Rodeo.

Situated right downtown with great parking nearby and a fantastic assortment of great restaurants within walking distance The Grand is an essential part of Kingston life.

This was our first visit to this charming theater.

Although we were in the last section of the balcony, it felt like we were center stage. Excellent acoustics and it didn't hurt that it was Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk.

After this experience, my wife and I are considering becoming Patrons.

The open bar was a bonus.

I thought I had reviewed this theatre some time ago but apparently not. My wife & I have been attending events at "The Grand" for man decades now and like the newer version as it is more comfortable with better sight lines. We attended a performance last night with some friends and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There are complaints about the lack of leg room but for us it isn't bad. My only complaint is washroom facilities could be a bit larger. Parking and accessibility is a-one and you don't have to walk far from the parking garage to be indoors. The theatre is good shape and the staff are pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable and take pride in the Grand. We have been to numerous concerts and platys over the years and are going to another concert in November. We are really looking forward to attending there again.
