    Great venue! Wonderful acoustics, your choice of GA/floor or seats for concerts. Friendly and helpful staff. Go early to take advantage of metered parking ($3 vs. $20) have a drink at Garcia's.

    One of the best venues I've ever been to. Great acoustics with a nice sloping floor that allows everyone to see the stage. Great beer selections at the bar.

    Killer place to see a show. Seen The Roots, Dirty Projectors, Regina Spektor and Sleigh Bells so far and each show has been unique and incredible. More people need to come out though! -- The Mayor

    Historic concert venue. Jerry Garcia's favorite. Amazing sound system and great acts. Can see from anywhere in the theatre. Great beers and the attached bar Garcia's is great as well.

    Get there early and have a drink in the bar. The chairs (which are upscale folding chairs) in our row, Row L in orchestra, were tipped forward due to the slope of the floor. Not comfortable.

    Amazing venue. Great sound, lights, very easy to get around in and very close to the train station. This is a very easy spot to get to from the city.

    Best band calendar of any venue in the tri-state area in the fall/winter of 2012. The venue itself is gorgeous with easily accessible amenities.

    The Cap is back and better than ever. Easy access off of major highways, 1,835-person capacity and a 6-month renovation has brought this Port Chester theater back to life. The East will rock again!

    Great venue to see any band. Very clean and updated, beers are a bit on the high side, but overall a great place

    Old theater with removed seats which makes for a nice sloped floor with great sight lines in general admission area. Place has character.

    If you are going to a show that will likely sell out, you may want to get reserved balcony instead of GA floor. The last few Phil Lesh shows were oversold and super crowded on the floor!

    Incredible venue. Most shows are sparsely attended so it feels more intimate than a show in the city. Loge seats are just plastic chairs on the GA area.

    At the Cap in Oct. 1997, the Rolling Stones and David Bowie put on two, seperate unforgettable shows at the Cap as part of the MTV Live at the 10 Spot concert series. Fabulous!

    Get there early bc they made us wait 45 on a line around the block in the freezing cold. When we got inside we realized they had enough employees they just didn't know how to use them productively.

    Nice venue, good sound, but the security and management staff is the worst I've ever seen. Is this a Miami club? No fun, no dancing, they even made my friend throw away her birthday cake. No joke.

    Regardless of what you hear, they do have a liquor license and its not crazy city expensive.

    Also, it's "Capitol" not "Capital" theatre. This is a concert venue, not a form of punishment.
