I had the pleasure of performing in the Capitol Theatre for the first time this month. As a singer, I can appreciate a room with curved ceilings, stucco and old school cloth theatre chairs. Why? One word. Acoustics! And is there anything more important than how something sounds or whether you can hear it all? No, there isn't! Too many... More

Group of friends drove from Toronto to Port Hope on a rainy night in December '14 for the Elvis Tribute show. The show was good, and the treatre was terrific. It seems unchanged from a while ago, but good bathroom renovations. Happened to be the Christmas Tree auction going on, so place full of really helpful volunteers. I'd highly recommend... More

We were there for the last show, the show was really really awesome! There were also a Christmas tree decorations competition in the hallway, very nicely decorated trees, each with style.

Lovely old theatre that's been redone and is a great spot to see live acts. Staff were very friendly and helpful also.

We saw a live production of Mary Poppins and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done!! We also enjoy the Festival of Trees each winter. However, rarely do we find other shows we want to attend. (They are either not "live" or they are risque or not interesting or ....)

I have been here many times and it is clean and the shows vary tending to focus on seniors. It could use more entertainment for varied ages. To keep it short we are satisfied with the overall experience but this place really needs to hire bartenders and make bigger bar area. Not only is it missing a ton of income... More

We attended the Mary Poppins matinee, and the show greatly exceeded my expectations. We were in awe of the Broadway worthy quality of performance. The vocals, drama, dance and music were spell binding! Watching the show took me back in time to the thrill I felt seeing the movie for my first time. I highly recommend this show for all... More

A great venue. Staff was pleasant. The bar is small but service was quick and there is ample seating in the lobby area. The theatre seating was comfortable and allowed for good sight lines from all sections.
