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.

We are so very lucky we have this venue in our home town. Some great entertainment! Worth the ticket prices as one doesn't need to put miles on their car, or gas in their car, to enjoy some top-notch entertainment right in our home town!

This is a beautiful old theater that has been preserved. There is a bar with friendly service, it would be wise to bring cash to buy drinks. There is a balcony and no bad seats anywhere.

City tax payers money goes to support this, If you want to go to the wine gala you need to buy tickets that cost $480.00

Located in the heart of North Bay, the Capitol Centre is a beautiful converted movie theatre. At 934 seats, it may not be the biggest one around, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm, character and acoustics. Not a bad line-up for a small city such as this. Recommend.

After returing to North Bay, we have visited this venue for several different performances, movies, events. It is a gem and part of the culture of the City - it has an entertainment venue for everyone.

The Capitol Centre lies within the downtown core of North Bay, Ontario. It offers a variety of live shows and other events as well as weekly movies during its open season. Most shows that I have seen are top quality. This theatre, that was built in 1929 has maintained most of its original authenticity.

Have been to the Capitol Centre for several concerts and movies. Staff are very nice and helpful. Seating is a little cramped in spots for someone 6 feet+.

The Capitol Centre is the cultural hub of North Bay, Ontario. I've attended Sunday night movies, high school plays, rock concerts, the North Bay Symphony, comedian shows, dance shows, film festivals ~ you name it; they have it! Without this centre, North Bay would be a cultural abyss.
