Captiol Theater to close
WHEELING, WV —. The great Capitol Theatre is scheduled to close and can be yours for $850,000.
Nearly 80 years after opening its brass-trimmed doors, the Capitol Music Hall — West Virginia’s largest, most famous and arguably most beautiful theater — is for sale and on the verge of closing.
A brief reprieve brokered by Gov. Joe Manchin III and Wheeling Mayor Nicholas Sparachane is expected to keep the historic hall open long enough for the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra to hold the final concert of its Masterworks series May 18.
Here’s the rest of the story on the closure from the Post Gazette.
