Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, the Capitol Theatre opened on August 2, 1913. At the time, it utilized the most modern mechanical features of its time including fireproof and earthquake-resistant construction. Today, the historic theatre is home to Ballet West and the Utah opera. The theatre also hosts community arts education programs.
Since it opened, the historic theatre has undergone several remodels and renovations. In 2019, Big-D Construction commenced the Capitol Theatre Phase 2 Renovation project. The project consists of the renovation of several portions of the theatre including the following:
Orchestra Level Seating to accommodate ADA coding
Basement Chorus Dressing Rooms
Showers & Restrooms
Big-D will also construct a new announcer booth, as well as a new AV & Sound system. Given the delicate nature of the building, construction crews were very careful to protect existing finishes of the historic landmark.
