Support the Capitol Theatre 

The Capitol Theatre, established in 1921, has had many ups and downs over the decades, but today remains an economic driver of Cleveland’s Gordon Square Arts District. After suffering extensive water damage, the theatre was restored and reopened by DSCDO in 2009.

Because we want to ensure that the Capitol will remain a neighborhood gem for years to come, we are dedicated to procuring funding for:  
· A complete upgrade to the theater’s digital equipment
· Plaster stabilization and restoration
· A repair reserve fund

Please join us for a Capitol Theatre Birthday Party - an evening to celebrate and support this historic west side movie house!
