Gordon Square Arts District - The Capitol Theatre


The Capitol Theatre has become the most exciting location for movie-goers on the West Side of Cleveland. Like a year-round film festival, the three-screen Capitol features independent, foreign and documentary films. Several market studies have demonstrated strong potential growth for an art and independent film theatre on Cleveland’s West Side. Now complete, the Capitol now features an expanded lounge and concession area, including a selection of beer and wine, along with traditional movie concession favorites.

Built in 1921, but vacant for the last two decades, this historic structure has reopened as a state-of-the-art movie theatre. Detailed wall murals, classically-inspired architecture, and a vaudeville stage has been restored to recreate the atmosphere of the 1920s-era movie palace, but with all the amenities of 21st century technology, featuring all-digital projection and 3D capabilities.

"The demand for specialty and independent films is growing and now film-goers who live on the West Side of Cleveland have been be able to enjoy these quality films in this neighborhood theater.” – Jonathan Forman, JRF Management, Cleveland & Pittsburgh Cinemas
