The revitalization of the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center rejuvenates two landmark theatres: The magnificent 1,267-seat Strand Theatre, restored in its entirety with new 250-seat mezzanine balcony seating, and the 600-seat Capitol Theatre, enhanced with stage expansion and improvements. The $17.3 million project, encompassing restoration, adaptive reuse, and new construction, creates a unified performing arts block by integrating four varied landmark buildings and three complementary building additions was a model for compatible new work within an historic context. A major rehearsal hall and multi-purpose meeting spaces enables the Center to respond to community needs.
