Open Door Event
Date and time
811 Main Street
Offered in English and French.
The Capitol Theatre is thrilled to host an Open Door Event on Sunday, September 24th, starting at 10am. The community is invited to discover this historic landmark through guided tours, a photo exhibit and a free movie screening. The entire day’s activities are free of charge and open to everyone.
Our mascot ‘Kevin the corgi’ will be in attendance and he can’t wait to meet all of his fans!
Guided tours will begin at 10am and leave from the Capitol Theatre Lobby every 15 minutes. Visitors will be taken through the Main Hall and given a rare view of the spaces not normally open to the public. Guests will find themselves on stage and will visit the Green Room (the private artists’ space backstage) before they take a secret passageway to the Empress Theatre. Actors from the Capitol Theatre Academy will serve as guides while they entertain and enlighten visitors. The last tour leaves the lobby at 2pm. (Please note the tour requires visitors to manoeuver stairways.)
In celebration of the many decades the Capitol operated as a cinema, the movie The Breakfast Club (1985) will be shown in the Main Hall.
Showtime is at 3pm and the popcorn is on us! No reservation needed. First come, first seated. Theatre doors open at 2:30pm.
