The Imperial Theatre is a facility that includes the 598 seat Theatre, two fully licensed bars, the Nova Room - which is available for small functions, the Theatre Box Office, the R.W.Lawton Gallery, rehearsal halls, workshops and administrative offices.

Theatre Sarnia is the legal owner and operator of the Imperial Theatre with business and artistic direction under the guidance of an elected Board of Directors from within it's membership. Theatre Sarnia is one of the oldest operating Community Theatre groups in Canada with it's roots in the Sarnia Drama Club formed in 1927.

The Imperial Theatre receives no operational funding from City, County or Provincial Governments. Ticket sales, Rentals, Donations and Sponsorships provide the major sources of operating revenue. The City of Sarnia provided an interest free mortgage during the rebuilding of the Theatre in 1996.

The Imperial Theatre has four salary employees to run the daily operations of the theatre and is grateful for the many hours of volunteer activity without which the Theatre simply could not operate.

  • What a great place to see a play and can’t wait to see Grease in May I loved to see Dirty Dancing with my family and a few friends!  more »
  • Great experience. The Wizard of Oz.....all time classic. Full house of a sold out crowd. Ushers at the ready and helpful. Seating relatively easy to access. Production proved the implementation of upgraded acoustics. Major community dollars have enhanced that system with major physical rebuilds in the offing. Entertainment delightful! Small stage that the crews built and rebuilt like clockwork. Quality chorus line. First rate vocalists. It had a good collection of great costumes for the munchkins.....and all the rest of the cast. You KNEW you were in the Land of Oz!!! Footnotes: our little area had our very own DOROTHY!!! Dressed up with pig tales tied with plaid blue ribbons. Little shiny RED glitzy shoes! And she brought her very own TOTO!!! Basket included slung right over her arm! So real. Many children in attendance even though this was an evening performance. Perhaps more from this small community being introduced to the Arts!
  • What a show! Great place to go and have an experience of a life time. Who thinks of a play when thinking of things to do with friends and/or loved ones. It's a great idea and fun for the whole family!
