From Vaudeville to Broadway, the Capitol Theatre has seen its share of performances grace the stage. Located right in downtown Salt Lake City, this historic theatre has witnessed over a century of history in fine arts.
Originally opening as the Orpheum Theatre in 1913, it was one of the first theatres in the area of this grandeur. It was later renamed in 1927, the Capitol Theatre, because it is located in the capitol city of Utah.
When a fire broke out in the theatre in 1949, no one expected it to take over 20 years to restore the building. Finally in 1975, the Capitol Theatre was remodeled to debut extravagant shows done by both local and traveling performances.
