The last time we went, to see the new Ricky Gervais movie (Brent on the Road or similar title) we shared the entire cinema with two other people so not a good... More

The Capitol is a great place for films. The ticket price is good value, used to do a loyalty scheme too. The foyer is clean and pleasant to wait in and the pop corn, sweets and drinks are reasonable. The staff are helpful and friendly. Always my first choice when going to see a film.

Managed to use the theatre recently twice - once to watch a show, it can get rather warm with so many bodies at nighttime but room to dance freely, or cross my legs without kicking the seats in front. Great view, and a bar for the interval. The second time was to watch a film, even though there are cinema... More

The Capitol looks very modern from the outside but has plenty of period charm within. With the theatre and cinema screens it is a great facility to have in the town.

The Capitol Theatre and Cinema in Horsham has a wonderful atmosphere. It is well run, staff are friendly and they have a varied programme. Even if you want to go to the cinema on your own, it feels safe and comfortable. It is clean and the seats are comfortable. It has plenty of qualities a multiplex just does not have.... More

Here again for ''Frank Williams: Vicar to Dad's Army'' in the well-appointed and modern Studio. I have reviewed this place before, and it is as clean, welcoming, pleasant and friendly as ever. As well as the studio there is the attractive 'art deco' style theatre and two cinema screens, the theatre itself often used as a cinema for the more... More

As a Friends of the Capitol member we use the facility many times each year. Website is very informative, staff are helpful and friendly and the variety of productions is excellent. Well worth signing up to the newsletter/programme information and benefiting from the discount options available.
