Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Port Chester: The Capitol Theatre

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Port Chester, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at The Capitol Theatre, designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb and opened in August of 1926 as a playhouse with great decorative beauty and luxurious comfort. The grand opening, which included a performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” by a ten-piece orchestra and a showing of Sea Wolf, sold out all of its seats (then 2,000), and had to turn hundreds away. People traveled from near and far to see shows at The Capitol. For decades the public enjoyed classic films like Casablanca, Gone with the Wind and The Taming of the Shrew. Patrons paid as little as 5 cents to see a double-feature Sunday matinee! After being closed for several years, in December 2011, Peter Shapiro announced that The Capitol Theatre would reopen and the venue began a third round of serious renovations. Previously the owner of the legendary Wetlands Preserve in Manhattan and currently the owner of the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Shapiro has no shortage of experience when it comes to running successful live music venues. He has breathed new life into the historical theater—with state-of-the-art light, sound and video systems, and new carpets, repainted walls and upgraded bathrooms.
