Over 20 Years ago the Capitol movie theatre was transformed into the Imperial Theatre.
Originally built as The Capitol Movie Theatre in 1936, the Capitol was lovingly restored between 1995 and 1997, in all of its Art Deco elegance, as indicated in the pictures of the foyer. It was transformed from the premiere movie-house to a modern theatre for live performances and renamed the Imperial Theatre.
The Imperial Theater hosts numerous events, local and big-name musical events, professional acts, speakers, comedy shows, and special events. The International Symphony Orchestra performs at the Imperial Theatre. In addition to symphonic concerts, the Imperial Theatre stages professional dramatic productions.
