Blown away first time visiter
Mar 2020
I've never been to this theatre before and I was blown away. It is absolutely stunning inside. I'm sure there is a reason for all of the elephant and siamese themed decoration, and there isn't a square inch that hasn't been shaped in some way. It is beautiful.
We came here to see Book of Mormon. The auditorium was fantastic, the temperature control was perfect, the sound and view was superb, and the seats were comfortable.

Always impressive

Having been watching operas at the Civic in the last twelve years or so, the theatre has always been impressive, the sound quality excellent, and the ambiance superb. Must visit especially when well known musicals are in town.

Have been to the Civic for a number of shows over many years. Without a doubt an amazing venue with great staff and facilities. When something comes up that is at the Civic I have no hesitation in making the trip and booking. Top notch!

What a beautiful venue. Stairs, and stage design is outstanding. Great facilities, however toilets are a touch small. Very comfortable.

The food at this small Korean restaurant was the best I've had for long time and reasonably priced.

Great Shows in a Grand Theatre!
Sep 2019
This cinema palace has been restored complete with sky above and shooting stars. Wonderfully laid out and heavily decorated, it makes going to see any show just that little more magical. The last three live shows I saw there were The Blue Men, Aladdin, and The School of Rock. Grab your tickets and enjoy the experience!
