    Live Theatre

    Victoria has always had a fine tradition of live performing arts. This tradition continues with a variety of venues and performances going on all the time.

    McPherson Playhouse

    Built in 1914 this center for concerts and live theater is located at #3 Centennial Square. The lobby houses a display of local and regional visual art. Performances change regularly, so ask our reservations agent for more information.

    Belfry Theatre

    Located in a former church in the Fernwood neighborhood, this theater provides top notch Canadian and international performances in a cozy setting.

    Royal Theater

    The Royal Theater is a turn-of the century European style venue. With a seating capacity of just 1400, its an intimate theatre that offers a great view no matter where you sit. Book your seats up close to take in the details, farther back for a broader perspective, or in the boxes to see and be seen. Wheelchair seating is also available.

    Victoria Opera

    The Pacific Opera Victoria puts on 3 productions during 3 months. October, February and April. The repertoire ranges from light Mozart, Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, and occasional Tchaikovsky. The Toronto Star has said of the Opera “The best kept operatic secret in Canada is the artistic Pacific Opera Victoria”.

    Victoria Symphony

    The season is kicked off on the first weekend in August with the Symphony Splash, a free concert held from a barge in the inner harbour. The Victoria Symphony performance season runs from October thru May.

    Movie Theaters

    Victoria has a fine selection of movie theaters ranging from single screen houses to large multiplexes. Many theaters are a short distance from the hotel and we would be happy to take you there.

    National Geographic IMAX Theatre

    This is one of the newest attractions in the downtown area and has proved to be a favourite among our guests. With a screen that is six stories high, the images seem to come to life. This is one of only six National Geographic IMAX theatres, so they tend to get films of very high quality. There are new releases several times throughout the year. The IMAX is located in the Royal B.C. Museum.

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    Scott McCarron, PGA TOUR Champion

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Colin Montgomerie, PGA TOUR Champion

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.
