Capitol Theatre

Enjoy an intimate concert, musical, play or community event at this prime live entertainment venue in the heart of downtown Columbus.

Capitol Theatre has developed a reputation for being one of the most exciting performing arts venues in Columbus in a relatively short time. It opened in 1989 and wasted no time in catching up, now rivaling the historic theaters in downtown Columbus for state-of-the-art live entertainment. The 900-seat venue hosts a wide variety of concerts, plays, musicals and events by international and local performers, including headliner acts and up-and-coming stars.

Check the Capitol Theatre’s diverse performance schedule to find out what’s going on during your stay in Columbus. Several local arts institutions call this cultural hub home. These include the BalletMet, Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus, the Columbus Symphony Youth Opera and the Ohio State University Department of Dance. These groups perform regularly for an enthusiastic home crowd between touring events around the country. The theater’s sizable seating capacity also makes it a great place to join the excitement when headliner concerts, family-favorite musicals and hilarious comedy acts come to town.

Start your night out at Capitol Theatre on High Street. This main street, in the heart of downtown Columbus, offers an array of excellent restaurants and cafés where you can find family-friendly dining experiences or an intimate table for two. This area, especially near Capitol Square, is a hub for performance venues. Many restaurants and bars cater to the pre- and post-performance crowds. Relive your favorite parts of the show over cocktails with other patrons or maybe meet one of the stars!

Capitol Theatre is located on the third floor of the Vern Riffe Center for Government and the Arts in the heart of downtown Columbus, opposite Capitol Square. The area is well-served by local buses, many of which end service at around midnight; if you plan on having a few post-show champagnes on opening night make sure you book a taxi in advance.
