One of Canada’s only remaining “Atmospheric Theatres”, the Capitol opened as a 380-seat talking-picture house in 1930. Fully restored to its original splendour, it has since evolved into one of Ontario’s leading Regional Theatres presenting Live Professional Theatre, Live Concerts, Films from the Toronto International Film Festival, HD Opera Live from the MET and much more. You will experience entertainment while sitting comfortably in a Nordic Castle Courtyard complete with twinkling stars in a blue evening sky.
The A.K. & Bob Sculthorpe Studio Theatre, located on the second floor of the Arts Centre, is a newly renovated 80 to 150-seat open concept, 1360 square foot space with full sound, lighting and multimedia capabilities. The Sculthorpe Theatre hosts a variety of events from live concerts, theatre, cabarets, weddings and more. The space is a popular rental venue for its cost, versatility and technological advances.
The entire Cameco Capitol Arts Centre is air-conditioned, and barrier-free and the theatre is equipped with a system for the hearing-impaired.
