“Fantastic music venue”
Review of Capitol Theatre

Reviewed January 16, 2014

As Jerry Garcia said in 1978 in Rolling Stone, there are two great music venues - Fillmore and Capital Theatre. Poster is on the wall back stage too. Had the opportunity to see Toots and the Maytals for his 70th birthday and it was fantastic. The combination of being able to stand close to the stage and dance as well as have drinks at a bar or sit in reserved seats makes this place unbeatable. Get there for a wonderful evening!

The Capitol Theater is versatile, I have been there both during a seated and general admission show. Both experiences were great. A number of people wondered up front during a few songs to the show that had assigned seats, I see bad reviews based on that. It's a concert, people are going to stand, people are going to sing, it all goes with the territory. During the general admission show there was plenty of room to move around and there are a few levels on the floor as well as balcony so you can see the stage from anywhere. There is a great bar attached to the venue called Garcia's as well as bars inside the venue for convenience. I found the staff/security to be very friendly and helpful. There is parking at the venue, but I suggest municipal parking across the street. (Just have to pay a small fee at a meter if you are there during metered hours or arrive early)

So, saw B-52's. They were good, but overly loud on couple occasions, trying too hard. Had 4th row seats on the aisle on the left side (DD 1-3). Absolutely no point spending for good seats, as they just let anybody come down and stand right next to you in the aisle for the ENTIRE show. Ushers only come down to tell people not to use a flash. I don't get it, why spend for better seats, or spend effort to pick seats to give you unobstructed view on the aisle, with nobody next to you... And then have somebody RIGHT in your line of vision and somebody else right next to you for 2 hours?

Really great intimate venue! Recently renovated too! The Capitol brings in many big names and never disappoints. The theater is a mile away from our hotel and guest can’t stop saying enough good things about it! Check their website out today for tons of great shows!

Very cool place to see a show. Easy to locate off I 95 and parking close by but a pricey @ ( $20.) . Great acoustics, friendly staff, awesome light show, no hassle environment. Garcias' bar has neat Jerry memorabilia. Gen. admission = standing for most shows so if you want to relax a little try and get a balcony seat where the views are awesome.
