River Run Centre

I went to see performers at the River Run. The seating is good with good viewsites. The venue is good but as usual not enough ladies washroom facilities.

Emily Carr once said, The spirit must be felt so intensely that it has power to call others in passing, for it must pass, not stop in the pictures... or in the performance..., or in the venue! River Run is one of the finest Centres I know. Recently saw Shane Koyczan here. From the ticket people, to the greeters, to... More

River Run Center always offers a program of great music/concerts/events of high caliber and well presented, in a modern setting.

I generally go to about six concerts per year, most recently to see Matt Anderson. Most times I have seats just in front of the sound booth in the centre of the theatre which are great.. My only complaint would be the size of the seats. I am not a large person but find them cramped and very little leg... More

The acoustics in the building are fantastic and the seating is very comfortable. The ONLY issue I had with this event, and a few others I've heard about that were held there, is that ADVERTISING is POOR! I heard nothing about the Rocky Horror Picture Show being held there, and a couple of others I missed. The Pink Floyd -... More

We recently attended an event here (Beyond Borders production called "One") and it was a pleasure. The staff can be a little pushy in their desire to keep things moving along but it does seem to keep things on time. There was always someone available if there were any questions as well. The hall seating was comfortable and the view... More

We attended several recitals of our daughters ballet and dance. Also, a few other ballets. The place is well organized, the staff does their job effectively and the actual stage is large and modernly equipped. Chairs are comfortable and you can see the stage from every row or angle. The last time we were at the balcony which likely give... More

My daughters and I saw Colm Wilkenson concert last Friday. The River Run centre is a very nice theater. Sound was good. Seats were comfortable. Buying tickets and picking them up at Will Call was very easy. Parking was $5 across the street (access around the corner on Macdonell St). I would go back.

Good seating - hardly a poor seat in the house. Easily accessible for everyone. Good parking close by - usually has a good selection of entertainment for most tastes. Limited refreshments are a bit annoying.

Helpful, friendly attendants. The seats are very comfortable for sitting for a time. Went to the Rock Symphany Oct 10th. The singers and the musicians were excellent. I didn't know what to expect when I went and I was very happy with the results. The parking in Downtown Guelph can sometimes be tricky to find a spot if there are... More
