Capitol Theatre (Fort Edmonton)

The Capitol Theatre
This new building, which was completed in Summer 2011, is a beautiful re-creation of Edmonton’s original Capitol Theatre, circa 1929. This new theatre has an intimate seating capacity of 243 seats, with an additional 4 wheelchair locations. The former Jasper Avenue facade that was in place following the original Capitol Theatre’s 1929 restoration has been captured in this new building, which incorporates modern construction methods but balances issues such as building code and the necessary technical infrastructure with historical authenticity. The Capitol Theatre represents the first project completed in the Fort Edmonton Management Company’s extensive 5-year Master Plan for the Park.
