The Capitol Centre is North Bay’s historic home for arts and entertainment since 1929. It has enjoyed strong community support for 90 years and has outlasted four other theatres in the area.
The Capitol Centre includes the Betty Speers Theatre, the WKP Kennedy Gallery, Martini’s Lounge and the Galaxy Circle Lounge. The Betty Speers Theatre, which seats 932 people, features Spanish Galaxy motifs adorning the walls and an original chandelier hanging above the majestic balcony staircase. For many years the theatre was predominantly a movie house but over time evolved to include live performances. The Capitol Centre plays host to performers ranging from international artists to Canadian rock royalty, dance companies, Broadway shows, symphony performances, comedy acts and much more!
The WKP Kennedy Gallery, located immediately off the main entrance, is a public art gallery that exhibits the finest in historical and contemporary Northern, Canadian and International visual artists. The WKP Kennedy Gallery showcases art of all forms and media in two gallery spaces, through public arts activities, in programming with the Capitol Centre and in touring exhibition projects.
When you come to North Bay, you’ll find the Capitol Centre standing tall in the heart of downtown, at 150 Main Street East. Also be sure to visit our website to see all the exciting shows scheduled for the 2019-20 season and enjoy the ease of buying your tickets online at capitolcentre.org
