The Capitol Theatre
This new building, which was completed in Summer 2011, is a beautiful re-creation of Edmonton’s original Capitol Theatre, circa 1929. This new theatre has an intimate seating capacity of 243 seats, with an additional 4 wheelchair locations. The former Jasper Avenue facade that was in place following the original Capitol Theatre’s 1929 restoration has been captured in this new building, which incorporates modern construction methods but balances issues such as building code and the necessary technical infrastructure with historical authenticity. The Capitol Theatre represents the first project completed in the Fort Edmonton Management Company’s extensive 5-year Master Plan for the Park.
Please note, the Capitol Theatre box office and concession takes cash only.
There is an ATM located in the Mahogany Bar for your convenience.
Whether you’re seeing a live performance or a movie, you can complement your vintage theatre experience by enjoying a variety of concession items that are unique to the Capitol Theatre. Enjoy sweet and savoury treats and refreshing beverages, as well as domestic and imported beer, wine and hi balls for adults!
