Take a virtual tour of the Capitol Theatre

Younger Singaporeans will not know the Capitol Theatre, which closed in 1998. Now, 17 years later, it will reopen with a splash on May 19 with a lavish $2.72 million musical. Singapura: The Musical will tell the story of a family's travails in the 10 years before Singapore became independent.

The theatre is now a dual purpose hall - besides hosting live performances, it can also accommodate film screenings. Before the theatre re-opens, get a sneak peek with our 360-degree panorama of the interior.
