Capitol Theatre is a Historic Landmark in Wheeling. We have been attending shows there since the 80's. We have seen artist like Bob Dylan, BB King and Jerry Seinfeld to name a few. Every seat is a good one. Love seeing such great performers there.

The place is on the older side. The seats are outdated and too close together. The prices are extremely high. $24 for balcony seat is too expensive. It does not offer much food or snacks. The place needs updated with options for more food and refreshments and if you are seated upstairs it's not for elders. All in the sound... More

The Capitol Theatre has been recently updated inside and out. It is located downtown Wheeling with lots of parking availability. It brings actors and actresses for the musical shows throughout the year along with several different singers performing. You can have dinner upstairs before the shows. It's just an all around great time.

We went to see the Doo Wop Show with some great singers. It was wonderful and we go twice a year. So glad this Theater keeps the groups coming.

We paid $85 per seat to see a concert at the Capitol Theatre. When we arrived, there were no seats that corresponded to those printed on our tickets. The staff brought us folding chairs and added us to the handicap box with 8 other people already sitting in there. As time went on, they eventually added another 4 people to... More

The Capitol Theatre is the perfect size for feeling like the artist is singing directly to you. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The ushers allow you to get up and dance in the aisle. We have seen two concerts here recently and both rate at the top of my list. If you get a chance to attend... More
