We recently attended Margaret Trudeau's talk - which was excellent, but the Capital Theatre was as well. In fact, everything about it was positive. From the staff and service to the beautiful building itself. Very highly recommended.

Went to see a play called Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. We went with a group from our church, as one of the performers attends our church. Everyone was amazing - the children were so good in the play. Had seen the play before, but it was just a good the second time.

The seats were very comfortable and the acoustics were excellent (we were near the front of the theatre). Box office opens 2 hours before the show, but would... More

This is a great venue for concerts. The acoustics are good, the seats are comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. I also find it refreshing that most, if not all, of the patrons are respectful of their fellow concertgoers and don't talk during the performance.

Was here for the Burton Cummings concert. Concert aside, this is a beautiful venue. Wow, totally restored absolutely beautiful. People of Chatham hope you all get a chance if you haven't to attend an event here. Top notch venue, historically renovated, great sound and very comfortable as well.

Our Family always tries to take in the amazing kids shows that come through town. Our Favourite has to be Imagination Movers. And sometime my wife and I get a Date night out and take in the ballet or a live performance. Sat front row to see Les Stroud (aka. Survivor Man) and love the unplugged music concerts. Great Venue...

Brings back the old times of going to the movies! I have been to several movies/concerts here and the seats and comfortable and spacious. Great views from each seat and my favorite is up in the balcony.
