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.

The Capitol Theatre box office and concession accepts cash, debit cards and credit cards.

Cinema Series won’t be available for the 2019 Summer season as we undergo a multi-million dollar enhancement project in the Park. During this time, we’ll be open for private event bookings and a variety of food and entertainment events. Keep an eye on our website or follow us on social media for news about upcoming events at the Capitol Theatre.
