The Capitol Theatre is a historic venue in Salt Lake City. It's age and grandeur is reflected everywhere with grand central chandelier. We prefer seats in the mezzanine as they give a more clear view, but there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Note: if you are over 6 feet tall like I am, carefully select your seat.... More

We attended Man of LaMancha, and were treated to a fabulous performance. Our seats were great and the ushers were very helpful. Our tickets were reasonably priced. Probably our favorite part of the night was observing the students who were in attendance! What a wonderful introduction to theatre for a younger audience.

I hadn't been to the Capitol Theatre before and enjoyed it immensely. The acoustics were great and the ballet was so cool. It was very impressive. What a great couples event. I consider myself a man's man and loved the event. Not just for the family and kids, guys take your ladies, you will both enjoy it.

This is my favorite theater in SLC and i get the opportunity to work here and enjoy her as much as possible. It's fun to watch people come into the Capitol for the first time and watch their faces look around at all the details. They don't build them like this anymore. We have a treasure.

This was my first trip to the Capitol Theatre and I was not disappointed. Went to see the opera "Carmen" and it was very well done. Loved the décor of the building and the staff was very helpful in helping us to find out seats. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely go back.

My company had a top leaders reception at the Capitol Theatre on the balcony and it was amazing. the view was awesome as well as the inside of the location. We had a wonderful time. the food was catered from an outside company.

I've enjoyed every show I've seen here recently. I can't usually afford "good" seats, but even at the top of the balcony, I've always felt happy with my decision to go.

With the major renovation completed this old gal looks even more amazing! The only complaint I have is that they did not add anymore water fountains when they added the new wing and restrooms. Maybe they just want people to buy more water bottles from them. The acoustics in this building are fantastic. The stage might be small, but the... More

Saw/heard "The Marriage of Figaro" here this week. Great venue. We have enjoyed perhaps half a dozen performance at the Capitol and all have been outstanding. I'm not sure why but at every performance we have been greeted by someone in a kilt. Being a kilt wearer it is fun start to an always good performance.
