News About This Theater
- Dec 7, 2006 — Canadian music legend Tommy Hunter comes to Sarnia
The former Capitol Theatre opened in 1936 as a local movie house which sat over 600 patrons. In 1988, after a long, successful run, the theatre closed.
Scheduled to be demolished, the theatre was saved by the Steering Committee of the Sarnia Little Theatre and its Art Deco opulence was restored.
Today, the Capitol Theatre is known as the Imperial Oil Centre for the Performing Arts, after the corporate benefactor who helped to restore it.
