Southern Theatre’s 125th Birthday Free Open House

September 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In celebration of the Southern Theatre’s 125th birthday, CAPA will offer a free open house on Sunday, September 26, from 1-4 pm. Proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Southern Theatre opened on September 21, 1896, as a “modern,” jewel box-style opera house, offering performances from some of the greatest names of the theatrical world and a new genre called Broadway. Owned and operated by CAPA since 1986, the 933-seat Southern Theatre is Columbus’ oldest existing theatre and the only remaining double-balcony theatre.

The Southern will be open for self-guided tours that include access to its stage and rarely seen backstage areas such as the dressing rooms, orchestra pit, and fly loft. Local docents will be scattered throughout, offering historical information and interesting, and perhaps lesser known, facts about the venue.

CAPA presents the Southern Theatre 125th Birthday Celebration Open House on Sunday, September 26, from 1-4 pm. Self-guided tours include stairs. Large bags/backpacks are prohibited. No reservations required. Admission is free. Masks are required.
