The Chatham Capitol Theatre is a 1208-seat entertainment venue located at 238 King Street West in the heart of downtown Chatham, Ontario. As Chatham-Kent's venue of choice for concerts and events, it is a popular stop for national and international touring artists. Originally a bustling 1930s movie theatre, the Capitol Theatre is imbued with historical grandeur, with art deco detailing, gilded décor, opera boxes and an ornate ceiling.

There are 452 seats in the balcony and 756 seats on the orchestra level, and the balcony can be closed for a more intimate performance setting. The 65-foot fly tower and state-of-the-art rigging allows for large-scale, technically advanced productions. The orchestra pit is designed for the optimal acoustic experience and can also be raised to floor or stage level as desired.
