Owner description: The Cameco Capitol Arts Centre is a professional regional theatre located 1-hour east of Downtown Toronto where you will experience top quality productions and concerts in the historic and picturesque small town of Port Hope. Since 2013, under Artistic Director & General Manager Antonio Sarmiento the Capitol has won awards and recognition for embracing its historical status AND using innovative technologies in visual effects to create an enhanced live experience. Recent critically acclaimed stage productions utilizing these technologies include productions of “Disney’s Mary Poppins” and “Singin’ In The Rain”, “SNARL’D! The Rapunzel Panto” and our highly anticipated productions of “On Golden Pond”, “Crazy For You” and the global sensation “Mamma Mia!”. The Capitol has become a “must-see” Ontario destination that has partnerships with local restaurants, cafes, merchants, accommodations and more to offer a complete “experience” to our guests.

Great theatre tastfully restored. A gem in Port Hope and events they put together are wonderful from MET concerts on screen and other musical and theatrical presentations superbly arranged and presented. Beautiful and elegant place to visit for some quality entertainment with wonderful local people and visitors abroad!

This theatre puts on a varied amount of entertainment so caters for all tastes from opera to rock, live performances, big screen productions. We took our Granddaughters to see Peter Pan - they were enthralled!

The play we saw was very well done. The theatre is old and very interesting. If you get a chance to see something there I would highly recommend it.

Went to Port Hope Capitol Theatre to see Johnny Winter. This venue is excellent if you want to see an artist in a small intimate setting. We were in the 3rd row near centre stage, excellent sight lines & great acoustics. Magic Slim was in the hospital in PA with heart troubles(hope he is better) so his son made the trip & is an amazing guitarist & showman which made this show even better. Johhny's health is also catching up with him as his voice isn't as strong but he makes up for it with his guitar. Will definitely keep my eye on this venue for future concerts as the Capitol is a great venue & great people working for them.

We love this theatre. No seat is bad here but recently my husband has required a wheelchair and they accommodated up very well.. The area for handicap seating is perfect and getting in and out of the theatre was so easy. The concert itself was a little loud but I believe this was no fault of the theatre but those setting the music. Would like to have heard more of the singing and less of the drums.
Overall just love going here for concerts or shows
