Capitol Theatre RMIT


Capitol Theatre RMIT

The Capitol Theatre RMIT in Melbourne delivers old world charm to film festivals and special events.

The Capitol Theatre in Melbourne is a classic Art Deco theatre and the first picture palace (theatre) to be built in Australia. With ceilings lit in 4 colours, it was designed by Walter Burley and Marion Mahony Griffin.

The cinema opened in 1924 with the lighting used in conjunction with the orchestral scores during the early silent film era. It added drama for the film goer, and remains a spectacular sight today.

The fabulous site was bought by RMIT University in 1999, and a refurbishment program is under way.

The theatre seats 600 and is used for lectures, festivals and events.

Located in Capitol Arcade in Swanston Street, Melbourne (opposite Town Hall).
