“Great place to see a live show”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The Capital Theatre is wonderful conversion of an old movie theatre. The municipality, other levels of government, as well as, private and corporate donors plowed millions into this project. It was supposed to be run as a non-profit performing arts theatre. They brought in some big acts, when it opened, however, the venture failed after only one season. Ownership has since been transferred to St. Clair College who now operate it. It is now sadly under-utilized. It is beautifully appointed inside and a great place to catch a live show when they occasionally come to town. I prefer seats close to the front balcony.

“What a wonderful renovation”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The Capital is one of these hold over's from an era past. It is so wonderful that it has been restored to its former glory. We enjoy going there for anythnig that interests us and they have such names as Goroen Lightfoot.

“Wonderful Venue”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Excellent shows that we have been too and the prices are more than fair. Cheaper here than the same show elsewhere for the same quality of seats. Really have enjoyed it. I am kinda partial to it too as I also did some of the decorative restoration.
