altThe Capitol Theatre first opened in 1928 as a stage performance venue and movie house, also hosting numerous radio broadcast performances. It was also once home to the Wheeling Symphony Society. The venue featured three motion picture machines—one for silent films, one for "talkies," and another for emergencies. With approximately 3,000 seats and two balconies, the Capitol was designed to offer "unhampered sighting...from even the remotest corner" of the theater. The interior was adorned with silken wall panels, a proscenium arch that towered above a 44-foot wide stage, and beautiful lighting fixtures that "contained hundreds of amber color prisms." In disrepair, the building closed in 2007. It was reopened in 2009 amid renovations, which are ongoing. Performers including Johnny Cash, B.B. King, and Lynyrd Skynyrd are among many such stars to have graced the Capitol Theatre stage, in addition to stage performances, which in more recent years have included Hairspray, Guys and Dolls, and STOMP.
