The Capitol Theatre is where SLC goes to see Broadway shows, Ballet West performances, and many other cultural offerings. Booster seats are available for the little ones.

Capitol Theatre, located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, is the home of Ballet West, Broadway Across America – Utah, and Utah Opera. The theatre, a historic landmark, also hosts world class Broadway productions, concerts and community events.

In 1913, the building began as the Orpheum Theatre, a vaudeville house and featured some of the "highest standard acts and greatest stars of the stage." In 1923, movies were introduced to the theatre and in 1927, new owners renamed the venue the Capitol Theatre. In 1975, the building was renovated and turned into a performing arts center as part of the Salt Lake County Bicentennial Celebration.
