CAPA Venues

CAPA operates eight theatres in the heart of downtown Columbus, each with its own charm and amenities. Beginning February 1, 2018, CAPA will implement new event security measures in all of our venues to better ensure the safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. The full policy can be found here.
