“Great place to see a live performance”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've seen two live shows here in the past couple of months and have enjoyed both. The theatre is lovely and they serve drinks (with alcohol and not) in the lobby that you can take back to your seat.
I've sat in the 3rd row and the 3rd from the back row and been able to hear well in both locations. Since the theatre slopes very gently, tall or large people directly in front of you can impact one's view. There is a good amt of leg room and the seats are comfortable.

“Phil Vassar concert”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

The theater is really beautiful. The box office process (Will Call) is very well organized. The ushers are charming, particularly a wonderful gent named Carl and his wife. He carefully explained the history of the building, and regaled us with interesting background. The concert itself was one of the best we've been watched.

“Diana Krall - What a concert!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The town is small ... Do not expect York to be twin to New York because its not!!!
Strand-Capitol is a gem tucked in the center of York... Yorktown hotel is great place to stay and Left-Bank a great place to eat... All within walking distance!

What can they improve: Their wine selection... Need good South American reds and New Zealand Whites...

What do they have to maintain: The friendly service... I had the pleasure to request special help and from the Center manager to all the people we came across all where extremely friendly! Congratulations, excellent group!!!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Beverages were available to purchase, and the venue was clean and well maintained. It was very nice to be so pleasantly welcomed when we arrived for the concert!

“Fantastic old theater”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have been here many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. The shows are top notch. From comedy acts to musical entertainers. The theater itself is beautiful and you feel like you go back in time.
