Capitol Civic Centre Endowment

It is remarkable that the Lakeshore area has saved and twice renovated the 1921 vintage vaudeville theatre  and movie palace, the former Capitol Theatre now known as the Capitol Civic Centre. In 1987, with funding and in-kind support from local businesses and individuals, a community of volunteers and professional craftsmen painstakingly restored this historic landmark. Over the summer of 2013, extensive renovations were made to the Capitol Grand Lobby, restrooms, auditorium, and exterior.

The Capitol Civic Centre, lovingly referred to as "The Jewel of the Lakeshore," serves as the home to more than a dozen resident performance companies and also presents national touring performers and shows. The mission of this community treasure is to preserve, maintain, and operate an architecturally significant historic venue for the enjoyment of performing arts, arts education, and community activities. More than 40,000 people attend performances and activities at the Capitol Civic Centre each year.

The Capitol Civic Centre Endowment was established by the Capitol Civic Centre Foundation to help assure that this premier performance venue remains a vibrant asset now and for future generations. Capitol Civic Centre Endowment funds are directed to the Capitol Civic Centre Foundation and are managed by the Lakeshore Community Foundation.
