Theatres

The City of Barrie manages the Georgian Theatre, a professional performing arts facility on the Georgian College campus, and the downtown Five Points Theatre, presented by Pratt Homes & Pratt Development and includes the Park Place Theatre.

Five Points Theatre Open

The Five Points Theatre, presented by Pratt Homes & Pratt Development, is currently open for rehearsing, recording, and select public events.

Georgian Theatre Open 

The Georgian Theatre is open and booking requests are being accepted. Call 705-739-4299 or email culture.venues@barrie.ca​ with booking questions.

Customers are asked to follow Georgian College's ​​safety protocols​ when visiting the theatre. 

The decision to close Georgian Theatre in 2021 and not to proceed with renovating Fisher Auditorium highlighted the urgent need for a large performing arts facility in Barrie.

The 2022 Budget included funding to reopen Georgian Theatre in 2022. Details about the cost of reopening are included in the ​New Investment & Service Recommendations document.

This solution will address a need for cultural performance space identified by the performing arts community. It is a short-term solution as the City moves forward with the potential of a new performing arts centre.

The Performing Arts Centre Task Force serves as a working group to advance the planning required to construct a modern performing art facility in the city downtown core to replace Georgian Theatre and Fisher Auditorium.

The box office for BOTH theatres is located at the Five Points Theatre, 1 Dunlop Street West. A box office at the show venue is open one hour before the performance until intermission for ticket purchase and pickup. ALL patrons attending the theatres must have a ticket, including infants.
