SURE, the Capitol Arts Theater, alone, may not be worth getting off of I-65 for, BUT, as a fan of "PUBLIC SUARES, this is one of, or thE BEST, one we've seen. The theater is a well restored "Art Deco" style, mid 20th Century, facility. The ATTRACTION is that it sits among many other beautifully maintained/restored buildings, on the beautiful... More

Recently saw the a capella group Home Free perform in this beautiful old theatre... It's been lovingly restored, the seats were okay (as okay as they can be in a venue of this age), the sound was great & the concert was phenomenal. The only problems were with access in & out of the theatre & the restrooms. It took... More

This is an old movie house that a non-profit has taken over. It has programs from time to time. Very limited program subject matter. It's good that they are saving an old movie building.

The Capitol Arts Center has been around for a long time! However it is still wonderful for concerts, plays, dance recitals, etc. It is well taken care of and the atmosphere is truly wonderful! Hope this venue is always part of Bowling Green!

We visited the Capitol Arts Center and the town square during a festival and had a great time. There was a scavenger hunt, arts and crafts, hot rods to look at, music to listen to, deep fried food to eat, and more! Bowling Green does some fun stuff, get out there and enjoy it!

Attended Warren Central High School musical production. Very impressed by this wonderful building and all its historic charm. So pleased this building has been preserved and utilized. Everything about it was great.

Capitol Arts and Sky Pac is a nice place to go with a group or a couple. They have some great shows and musicals. The singers we went to see and hear were very talented. It is a little pricey but so is almost everything you do now a days. They have a beautiful new building.

I love to catch a show at the Capitol. I was able to watch the Kentucky Orchestra and Retromadness here during the last several years as well as Webb Wilder and "Webbfest V" in early October this year. I have not found a bad seat in the house and love to watch the shows from the balcony where it is... More
