Fabulous Theatre
Mar 2020
Have enjoyed many shows here over the years and last night was the first time we were in the gallery. Front row seats with a great view over the stage, would happily book up there again. Really beautiful theatre with comfortable seats - there are toilets up there and a bar although Id skip the expensive drinks - water if freely available.

Wonderful Theatre lovingly restored since our earthquake 'season' ,great ambience . Only bleat I may have is that the seats are too close together,a bit like cattle class on an aeroplane. Despite this I am looking forwards to the next concert there.

A stunning looking theatre, absolutely gorgeous detail inside.

A stunning looking theatre, absolutely gorgeous detail inside. Far bigger than I realised it was until I arrived and found out from a staff member it'll comfortably seat 1100 with the two circles open.
Staff were very friendly, informative and accomodating. The seating is comfortable and arranged in an offset style to maximise viewing and reducing the possibility you'll be stuck behind a tall person restricting your view.
The bathrooms are very nice, well maintained and clean at all times I visited them

Isaac Theatre Royal is impressive to look at from the outside. Did not have time to explore inside or watch a performance. Certainly worth a photo stop.

Bad Sound - pay more than peanuts.
Oct 2019
I saw PMJ last night.
The sound monkey was out of control.
The volume was so LOUD, all melodic detail was completely lost.
I think the sound monkey only likes two types of music, LOUD and LOUDER.
I think the performers were very talented, but only occasionally picked out any of their nuanced skill, from the very LOUD volume.
I left early.

5oth Wedding Night out Show
Aug 2019
Great ambience, good sound, good view of Irish Special show, BUT BUT BUT
I'm in a wheelchair and they advertised 'wheelchair OK' but I was forced to wheel to a wheelchair place and my precious wife of almost 50years was forced to sit somewhere else. I couldn't see her, talk to her or hold her hand. She was somewhere else behind me. If you are in a wheelchair then don't go to the Isaac Theatre Royal - go somewhere else if you want to enjoy a show with someone you love.

Breathtakingly Beautiful.
Jul 2019
Saw Hamlet here earlier this year and it was absolutely brilliant. I couldn't get over how gorgeous the theatre itself was! I felt like I was in a castle of sorts. The actors were fantastic, the music was wonderful, it all came together so well, and was a wonderful outing for my boyfriend and I. Would definitely recommend this theatre.

What a breathtakingly beautiful theatre. Christchurch Cantrabians are very fortunate to have such a lovely venue for various types of shows. We’ve seen opera, comedians, buskers, Cirque du Soleil, Broadway Musicals, bands and even Jimmy Buffett there. Sir Ian McKellen even has a box, as he was instrumental in getting it refurbished so quickly after the earthquakes. There are many places to eat nearby, too.
