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.

The performances were outstanding with the cast of nine each having stunning voices and much talent. We thoroughly enjoyed it and... More

The first 'Capitol Comedy Night' was held at the Sculthorpe Studio Theatre, second floor of the Capitol Theatre, on Feb 7/14. Located in historic Port Hope, Ontario, it is the last fully restored atmospheric movie theatre still in operation in Canada.. An intimate club arrangement was the perfect setting to enjoy a hilarious evening of exceptional stand up comedy. Check... More

A very few years ago this theatre was flooded when an ice jam formed on the Ganaraska River but they seem to have the river under control since then with the alterations that they made. The second hand seating has a very luxurious and comfortable feeling with every view from every seat a great view. It is very handy in... More

The Cinderella naughty panto was fun. Not quite as good as Stirling, but a nice evening and much closer to home. The Christmas tree display as usual was fabulous.

Beautiful Christmas trees decorated with thousands of lights and decorations that are raffled off just before Christmas. I make a point to attend every year!!
