The theater was built in 1926 and designed by noted architect Thomas W. Lamb. The room boosts a 65-foot domed ceiling, standing or seated floor, elegant lobbies and a breathtaking balcony with presidential booths.
The Capitol Theatre was utilized as a concert space throughout the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and featured performances by such acts as Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Traffic, David Bowie, Phish, and The Rolling Stones. In 1984, The Capitol Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
