Songs and shows on stage in the heart of Port Hope

The Capitol Theatre is a vintage 1930 movie theatre downtown, and one of the last remaining “atmospheric” theatres. You'll find yourself in a medieval castle courtyard beneath a starry sky – a playful and perfect setting for the magic on stage. It's known for amazing theatre productions like 2019's Guys and Dolls and Million Dollar Quartet, concerts and events like the annual Vintage Film Festival in September.

"In a community that is committed to architectural conservation, the Capitol is a jewel."

- Susan Ferley. Artistic Director at the Capitol Theatre

Nostalgic drive-in theatre

The Port Hope Drive-In is another memorable venue to see a movie under a star-studded sky. The theatre started in 1945 and continues the late-night tradition of double features and favourite snacks at the concession stand, including the exclusive Prings, onion rings made like poutine with cheese and gravy.
