The Capital 8 Theater in Montpelier Is Back in Business

This theater seats 1,250 guests and boasts an extensive lobby. Perfect for any group gatherings of friends or families!


The theater provides various seating arrangements, from rows closest to the stage (Row A) to those furthest away (Row M). Seats numbered 1-7 are situated to the right side of the stage, and 8-22 at roughly center stage. Seats reserved for individuals with disabilities are also numbered.

The lobby features a spacious concession stand staffed by friendly and knowledgeable staff. The in-seat menu rivals any movie theater with drinks of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties and meals, snacks, salads, desserts, and much more available for your enjoyment.

Patrons should abide by all house rules and behave appropriately during a show. Anyone violating them may be asked to leave. Law enforcement or the venue may conduct background checks and security searches on them as needed, while masks or items that cover up one’s face are not allowed into theaters for safety reasons.
