This is a beautiful venue, an old refurbished concert hall . Just don't get tickets too close to the front ...too loud there and hard to get the lyrics!

Attended the Sold Out Gov't Mule show. The theater was built in 1927 and the seats reflect that. They were very tight. I think I read the venue seats about 1,500, which seemed about right. We sat in the balcony and had a pretty good...More

Capitol Center for the Arts is the best venue for an evening out for a play, concert or comedy show. Great Date Night venue! It's clean and prices for drinks are reasonable.

Saw Juston McKinney there. He was hilarious, but we almost had to leave. The seats are so tight that it is uncomfortable after an hour or so. Nice theater, but the lighting also almost hits the crowd, so it gets hot quickly.
