The Capitol Centre is a not-for-profit organization providing arts and entertainment opportunities, and contributing to the development of performing and visual arts in North Bay and the region of Northeastern Ontario. It is housed in the building originally known as the Capitol Theatre.
This multi-use facility was purchased from Famous Players and then renovated to house a 1000-seat proscenium theatre and the WKP Kennedy Gallery. The Capitol Centre is the jewel in the very center of the Northeast. Patrons visit the Capitol Centre from as far away as Cochrane and Timmins to the North and Muskoka to the South. It is home to the North Bay Symphony String School and a number of artists who have studios on the renovated second floor. Our various building spaces are wheelchair accessible thanks to the installation of an elevator only a few years ago. In addition, the theatre is equipped with a Phonic Ear System and a Quiet Room for use during performances.
The community looks to the Centre staff for guidance and assistance in producing and presenting exciting community theatre and events. Community theatre groups that utilize the facilities include Dreamcoat Fantasy Theatre, TOROS (Theatre Outreach on Stage) and Rep 21.
The RBC Galaxy Circle Lounge, Martini Lounge and WKP Kennedy Gallery are sought after for meetings, lectures, presentations, weddings, and parties.
Live performances, art exhibits, camps, movies and special events fill the calendar and there are always new events added.
