Time-lapse video shows renovations at Capitol Theatre

Some say it’s haunted. Others said it was “rich and restful“. Regardless of how you describe it, the Capitol Theatre in downtown Salt Lake City is a building that’s rich with history, and it’s undergoing a massive, multi-million dollar overhaul.

The Capitol Theatre is located on 200 South between Main Street and West Temple, and is home to the Utah Opera, Ballet West and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company. Since opening in 1913, the building has hosted silent movies, vaudvillians and Broadway Across America shows like “Wicked“, which is slated for the summer of 2014.

When the theatre reopens Oct. 1, 2014, the new Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre will showcase improvements, while keeping its traditional flair. A new heating and air conditioning system, improved sight lines and seating, and a bigger lobby are just some of the improvements patrons can expect.

This time-lapse video was posted by lucematt, and shows the latest progress of renovations at the Capitol Theatre. While it’s mainly shots of cranes and heavy construction equipment moving around, and some work to the exterior of the building, it’s interesting to see how much effort it takes to renovate this landmark property.
