Built in 1918, and known as The Capitol Theatre. The Capitol originally opened as a Vaudeville house seating 1079 guests, but converted to a movie theatre in the mid 1930s. In 1998 it officially closed its doors and reopened as a venue, hosting a large number of wedding, galas, private functions and special events.
Centrally located at Yonge & Eglinton, the historic Capitol Event Theatre special event venue has been restored to its original 1918 grandeur. With period architecture and elegant vintage details. It creates the ultimate combination of old world glamour and modern functionality.
The Theatre boasts a grand scale ballroom, tiered mezzanine and large stage. Equipped with the latest audio/visual technology, The Capitol Event Theatre is spacious enough for grand scale events. Yet warm enough for a more intimate gatherings.
Hosting multiple events, ceremonies, weddings, fashion shows and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate galas, teambuilding and film shoots; The Capitol Event Theatre has become the quintessential event venue in Toronto.
