The venue looks good from the outside but after you attend a few events you learn to hate it. Entrance and exit is jammed into a very small area. During the summer many patrons bail out through the fire exit only doors. Poor leg room...More

Roy Thomson Hall is a beautiful building with great facilities. The seats are comfortable and compared to other venues spacious. They have great shows like the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. A must watch.

Took my granddaughter (11 yrs old) to her introduction to the symphony with a kids-special featuring the percussion instruments. Entertaining and funny. Venue was good - just need more women's washroom facilities.
