Renovated old-style theater in downtown Clearwater. If you are expecting a shiny new state of the art theater then you will be disappointed. But if you want old-style character this is the place to go. It's small, about 740+/- seats. We sat in the back...More

Six of us went to see Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo on March 2. The venue is on the small side, so even though we were sitting in Row S on the main floor, we had no problem seeing the performance. The acoustics are...More

Saw a wonderful Mindi Abair concert there. The venue is very nice, but the seating and very limited legroom is so cramped in the Mezzanine and other areas that it was excruciatingly painful to sit through the concert. One member of our party finally got...More

My wife and I recently visited the Capitol Theater and really liked the venue, but we were very disappointed with the Gordon Lightfoot concert. He can no longer sing and should not have been booked. I'm really upset that the Ruth Eckerd hall agents as...More

The Capitol Theatre is one of the best small venues around the Tampa Bay area. It only seats about 700 people, but has hosted big-name acts like Jay Leno, Sheryl Crow, David Crosby and Train. The sound is great and the production is always professional....More

This is a beautiful theatre. We saw Christmas catechism and it was a lot of fun. Although you need to sit on the main level to feel a part of it. We were in the balcony and felt kind of left out.
