Matthew Effemey, Operations Manager at The Capitol announced last Friday “We are delighted to be offering a selection of fine films on our three screens, many of which the film distributors have allowed us to screen at a discounted rate. In turn, we are pleased to be able to pass on this saving to our customers which means all tickets from Friday 24 July will be £6 and Family Tickets £20. Tickets for National Theatre Encores will also be discounted to £10 and this offer will run until further notice. We look forward to welcoming back more of our valued customers”
This announcement comes as more people returning to The Capitol are continuing to give good feedback on the fresh look of the venue. One local lady commented on Twitter “Looks lovely! Just been to see Love Sarah and the place was gleaming. Loving the Art Deco decs and full marks to the staff for a great welcome”.
