The Capitol Theatre is one of Salt Lake County’s most beloved buildings. A landmark in downtown Salt Lake since 1913, a newspaper reporter at the time described the building as “rich and restful, without vulgar or gaudy display.” Vaudevillians, silent movies, and “talkies,” were the mainstay in the theatre for years.
Renovated and reopened in 1978 the Capitol Theatre is known today for its elegant turn-of-thecentury architecture and serves as the home for Ballet West, Utah Opera, Children’s Dance Theatre, and Broadway Across America -Utah.
The Capitol hosts a wide variety of events each season. Recent events include auditions for Fox Television’s So You Think You Can Dance; singers Sinead O’Conner and Jim Brickman; comedian Carlos Mencia; and the annual KUER Public Radio Silent Film night. Large scale productions at the Capitol include The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Miss Saigon.
