Free Open House Walking Tour

July 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

  • Sumo

As part of its year-long 50th anniversary celebration, CAPA will offer a free open house walking tour of the Ohio, Southern, and Palace Theatres on Saturday, July 13, from 1-4 pm. The three historical, downtown theatres are owned and operated by CAPA, and will be open for self-guided tours that include access to their stages to take photos with the theatre as a backdrop. Local docents will be scattered throughout, offering historical information and interesting, and perhaps lesser known, facts about each venue.

CAPA presents the CAPA Theatres Free Open House Walking Tour on Saturday, July 13, from 1-4 pm. Self-guided tours do include stairs. Rain or shine event. Large bags/backpacks are prohibited. No reservations required. Participants can begin the tour at any of the three venues in any order. Enter each theatre beneath the marquee. Admission is free.

CAPA’s 50th anniversary celebration is made possible through the generous support of the American Electric Power Foundation and Nationwide, with special support provided by Huntington Bank.

Participants are encouraged to pick up a tour program and have it stamped at each of the three tour stops. Those who collect all three stamps can receive a free pair of tickets to the 2019 CAPA Summer Movie Series by showing their program at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.) before 4pm on Saturday, July 13, or during the Ticket Center’s regular business hours the following week, July 15-20. The two free tickets are good for any remaining screening on the 2019 CAPA Summer Movie Series that runs through Sunday, August 11, at the Ohio Theatre.
