Mission Statement

Rome Capitol Theatre provides cultural and educational opportunities to the community through the performing and visual arts in Rome, NY’s historic 1928 theater.

Description

Rome Capitol Theatre was built in 1928 as a silent movie palace, and is the only remaining historic theatre in Rome. The 1,741-seat Theatre showed films and featured unit vaudeville until 1973, when it closed as a first-run theatre. It showed sporadic second-run films until its reopening in 1985 as a civic center. Since that time, the Capitol has been home to variety of performances, including concerts, recitals, children's theatre, silent and classic films (with live theatre organ accompaniment when applicable), and musical theatre. The Theatre is governed by a board of directors, employs two paid staff people, and is staffed largely by volunteers.
