The sound experience in this place is amazing. Built in an oval shape the ceiling can be "tuned" much like the strings of an instrument via computer programming during a performance. The magic unfolds above you while you remain transfixed on the incredible show on stage.....ok i did sneak a few peeks so I could better understand how this works.... 更多
I was privileged to attend the first concert in this theatre. Over the years, regardless of the performance, I have been thrilled by the acoustic level, the comfort and the variety of the performers/performances. Perhaps the audience is too relaxed and could honour our guests with more thought to their attendance attire. A great venue deserves a certain formality.
The theatre has not a poor seat in the house. I have enjoyed concerts from every vantage point - even on the stage. The challenge is getting there from many points in Vancouver. The best is to drive and pay for parking in the garage. I like to arrive early as the rose garden is close by and even in... 更多
In December 2015 we attended Festive Cantatas – Praetorius Christmas Vespers by Early Music Vancouver at the Chan Centre. As always, the sound in that space was wonderful. It's also visually stunning. We had excellent sight lines from our balcony seats. There is a pay parking lot nearby (and you can pay by phone to avoid lineups at the machines).... 更多
If you have an opportunity to attend a concert at the Chan Centre at UBC don't miss it! I love everything about this venue - great acoustics, original architecture, cozy and comfortable seats. I recommend getting there early and also visiting the Rose Garden next door and the UBC Anthropology Museum. If you don't mind walking a couple of blocks... 更多
Was able to get side balcony seats close to stage for less than I had imagined. Saw an opera, was also impressed with the acoustics. Easy parking in parkade, too. Huge variety of productions/concerts.
This was my first time here, but my husband had been here a few times before. The theater is beautifully designed inside with loads of seating at just the right angle that even if you were back several rows, you still feel like you are close enough. I wouldn't recommend the "cheap seats" though, which are the dress level and... 更多
We have been to the Chan Centre numerous times over the years for all types of concerts. Everything about it is wonderful, from the architecture to the acoustics. There isn't a bad seat in the house. It is a bit unusual with the parterre seats (the non-orchestra sections) in a horseshoe shape, but that ensures a good view for everyone.... 更多
While we thoroughly enjoyed Zakhir Hussein's Celtic Connections at the Chan Centre, the seating was horrible. It was like being in a straight-jacket. No where else does buying low end tickets mean such discomfort. Won't be going there again.
