The Future Lies Before Us
The Capitol Theatre is one of Yakima’s proudest accomplishments. Built in 1920, the theatre has served as a cultural icon; and yet, as beautiful and historic as the Theatre is, each passing year shows the current infrastructure to be less than adequate for today’s performances.
We recognize that the theatre is a significant community asset and social responsibility has always been the heart and soul of the Capitol Theatre. As such, the CTC has embarked on a bold and historic course to secure the future of the Capitol Theatre by contributing to the quality-of-life of Yakima’s downtown core. Their efforts, to-date, have raised over $10.8 million along with a commitment to secure the remaining $3.75 million to complete the CT Center.
