The Capitol is a lovely old theatre. I attended "In the mood' on 11 October and it was great fun. The Capitol is a great venue.

We saw the great sir David Attenborough here. An amazing venue which created a great ambiance. A few technical hiccups with the tv screens and microphones which were a little bit dissapointing given the very costly premium seating tickets (possibly overpriced). Overall a great experience with helpful staff.

We saw the Addams Family at this theatre. The theatre is in east to access location. We walked up from Darling Harbour after dinner.
We were on the floor, about 6 rows back from the stage. We could easily see all of the stage and the seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room.
Food and drinks are expensive, however they had a good range.

As per a previous post to trip advisor, Melbourne probably has a better theatre district to Sydney but this Theatre has to be the grand old lady of theatres in Sydney. Have been to many a show here and its a brilliant old landmark and if it isn't actually heritage listed, it damn well should be. They do have a behind the scenes tours which are run on Monday of each week where you can see how the magic is done. I have seen Cats, Phanton, Miss Saigon, Addams Family and many more here and its always been a great view and fantastic theatre. Would highly recommend seeing a show there !!

Any seat down the bottom is great even ones up the back so save your money unkess your wanting an up close and personal. Best seats probably 10 rows from front too close and you are looking up rather than at
