ABOUT THE VENUE
The Curtain Rises
The year was 1918 when the historic Capitol Theatre began captivating the imaginations of audiences. Located UPTOWN just north of Yonge & Eglinton, the theatre featured vaudeville shows and silent films. Records show the venue was originally built for Mr. McClelland, who arrived in Canada from Kingston Jamaica (brap brap).

Originally capable of seating 1300 patrons, the theatre possessed a stage to accommodate vaudeville and a space near the stage for musicians. In 1924, a balcony was added. In the 1990s, it was a second-run movie house, featuring films that were not recent releases.

The Curtain Closes & The Lights Go Out. The End Of An Era?
The Capitol shut its doors as a movie theatre in November 1998, however, the old movie house was saved from demolition. After a 2 million dollar reno, The Capitol was lovingly restored to its former glory and re-opened as a special event venue named the Capitol Event Theatre. Though the seating had been removed, the high ceiling, stage and ornate interior detailing were maintained with several modern comforts added for guests to enjoy in the city's premier special events venue!
