The Capitol Theatre

Map & Directions 149 Westchester Ave.
Port Chester, NY 10573


Merchant's Description

In December 2011, Peter Shapiro announced that The Capitol Theatre would be re-opening with himself at the helm, and began yet a third round of serious renovations. Previously the owner of the legendary Wetlands Preserve in Manhattan and currently the owner of the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Shapiro has no shortage of experience when it comes to running successful live music venues. He planned to breathe new life into the historical theatre—with state-of-the-art light, sound and video systems; as well as new carpets, repainted walls and upgraded bathrooms.

Tips from foursquare

  • Talia F. on 12/30/12

    Old people smoking weed. Hilarious.

  • Cass A. on 10/11/12

    Best band calendar of any venue in the tri-state area in the fall/winter of 2012. The venue itself is gorgeous with easily accessible amenities.

  • Kern M. on 10/23/12

    Also, it's "Capitol" not "Capital" theatre. This is a concert venue, not a form of punishment.

  • Houlihan Lawrence on 10/01/12

    The Cap is back and better than ever. Easy access off of major highways, 1,835-person capacity and a 6-month renovation has brought this Port Chester theater back to life. The East will rock again!

  • Al B. on 07/01/13

    Get there early and have a drink in the bar. The chairs (which are upscale folding chairs) in our row, Row L in orchestra, were tipped forward due to the slope of the floor. Not comfortable.
