Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, the Capitol Theatre opened on August 2, 1913.
Designed by Albert G. Lansburgh, who had graduated from the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, the Capitol Theatre was orginally built as part of the Orpheum Theatre chain.
It utilized the most modern mechanical contrivances of its time, bringing advancements in safety and comfort through such features as fireproof and earthquake-resistant construction and air conditioning.
The building was remodeled in 1929 as a motion picture theatre and operated successfully for decades. By the early-1940’s it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Tracy Barham. In 1976, the theatre was purchased by Salt Lake County and restored closely to its original form.
Today, this historic landmark is the home of Ballet West, Utah opera, and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company. The theater also hosts world class Broadway productions community arts education programs.
