Attended B.E. Taylor's Christmas concert at the Capital Theater. Perfect setting for this interactive holiday show. Comfy seating and great acoustics. Nice to be able to enjoy a glass of wine during the performance. A wonderful evening!!

Attened a doo wop concert and had a great time. Theatre is located right off highway and has plenty of parking close by. Been here a few times and all seats are good and the prices for tickets are good. Great place.
