Capitol Theatre

Envision for Thunder Bay a space solely dedicated for the performing arts. This would be a space in which to showcase our community’s theatrical and dramatic imagination. It would be a space in which to release individual and group talent. This was the vision that prompted Ahsanul Habib to privately acquire and fund the Capitol Theatre building in Thunder Bay’s South Core Business District.

Being a former theatre, this building in its location and past use is ideal for a performing arts centre. Hold auditions, rehearsals and performances in our main hall or concert theatre. Allow our stage curtains to part for your performance.

Fill the Capitol Theatre to its capacity as you invite friends, families and guests for an evening of entertainment. Including its stage, the building’s main hall can be a lively venue holding up to 350 people. Choose to seat 225 people in our concert theatre.

Here at the Capitol Theatre, combine entertainment with food. Make use of the theatre’s existing chattels, commercial convention ovens, dishwasher and dryer, stainless sinks and grease trap. Open the venue’s bar, which is up to code and has a liquor license for 200 people. The theatre comes with its own beer fridge as well.

The Capitol Theatre is currently preparing for renovations by the Capitol Arts Group, a non-profit coordinating organization. This group will seek to offer affordable performing arts spaces to any and all groups in the greater Thunder Bay area. Appreciate this building’s rich potential and become part of its’ exciting and promising future as the Habib Centre for the Performing Arts!
