The Capitol Center for the Arts was first known as the Capitol Theater. The Capitol Theater, in the Vaudeville area, was a prime stop later becoming the premier movie house and concert hall in Concord. However, in 1989, it was closed due to a massive need for repair.

Years later, $4.2 million was raised to support the now non-profit and renamed Capitol Center for the Arts. 250 volunteers participated and allotted 3,000 hours collectively to paint the Egyptian inspired artwork. The restored theatre opened in November 1995. Now, the theatre, with 1307 seats, is equipped to offer a variety of high-quality events such as Broadway shows, family shows, dance performances, and international shows, and even business conferences and seminars. It also features the Governor?s Hall, a function room accommodating up to 350 guests, and the Kimball House, the Victorian Mansion equipped with a dining room, parlor, library, and board room.
