“Great Local Theater for Kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I have taken my daughter to several plays at this theater - actors are local and include the Ballet School - the performances are great for younger children. One of the only theater for kids around this area.

“Wonderful show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

Capitol Theater does a fantastic job in recruiting interesting shows. The theater has been renovated however the seating is very uncomfortable for extended shows.

“Loved the Capitol Theatre in Chambersburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

I recently had the opportunity to see a show at the Capitol Theatre in Chambersburg PA, and what a beautiful theatre it was! Located on Main Street, the theatre was built in 1927 and still retains the charm of that era, though it has been renovated. It now has 852 seats in the main theatre and the balcony. There are a variety of shows offered there for every age group. We saw Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone and the show was fantastic!!! The sound system was great. My friends and I belong to Peter's fan club and attend many shows all over the U.S. every year and this venue was one of the nicer ones that I have been to. Chambersburg is a very small town and since we were only there for the evening, I did not have the chance to see much of it, but it seemed to be a nice little town. Like all small towns, parking was a little bit of an issue. There is a parking lot for theatre patrons, but it was full by the time we got there. We did find a spot on Main Street, very close to the theatre. No need to feed the parking meters after 5pm. Just arrive a little early to get a space in the parking lot. I would highly recommend this theatre and hope I have the opportunity to visit there again.
