“Windsor International Film Festival! ”
Review of Chrysler Theatre

Reviewed 6 November 2017 via mobile

I came here on a Sunday night to watch Call Me By Your Name during the Windsor International Film Festival. It was being held at the Chrysler Theatre in the St. Clair Center of Arts. The previous films I’ve seen during the festival: Tom of Finland, Thelma, A Fantastic Woman and BPM were all held at the nearby Capitol Theater. The auditorium of the Chrysler theater was much larger than those at the Capitol Theater. There weren’t able speakers in front of the screen which was also nice. The projector screen was slightly larger than those at Capital Theater, but still not as large as those at actual movie theaters. The seats were decently comfortable (I actually prefer the seats at Capitol Theater more to be honest). I’ve been waiting to see this film ever since it premiered to raves at the Sundance Film Festival back in January. The film was beautiful! It definitely lived up to its massive hype! It’s the best film I’ve seen at the festival and the best film I’ve seen this year without a doubt. I cannot wait to see the film soar during award season! It was a great movie experience! I will most definitely be coming back to next year’s Film Festival and am already looking to it!

Just saw Jesus Christ Superstar Musical at the St. Clair College Chrysler Theatre. Our seats were in the balcony and really enjoyed the theatre and performance. Lights, sound and seating all good. Only complaint was that you can only access the balcony seats from one direction. So next time, I will choose seats at the far right side, so less getting up and down as people pass by to get to their seats (just a suggestion). Definitely will be attending more performances.

Thank you, Ioriar for your review!
We agree with your balcony access comment - I guess the architect didn't realize this when it was designed in the 70's!

We went to see a Tribute of The Eagles Classics, it was so good and they sounded just like them. Our seats were in the middle about halfway up, very good and could see the band well. First time here and not the last, will return to see other venues definitely!

We went to see the year-end performance for St. Clair College, and were delighted with the theatre. We had orchestra seats that were off to one side, but the visibility was great, and the acoustics (both amplified and from the live musicians in the pit) were clear.

We do agree that the St. Clair College Music Performance Students and The Entertainment Technology students put on a great show both on stage and behind the scenes!
