Capitol Theatre - Melbourne Open House 2011

Melbourne’s former Capitol Theatre is part of the RMIT campus. The theatre was recently open to the public as part of Melbourne Open House.

To get to the theatre you walk off the busy main street into a white marble lobby and up a run of stairs. Given the small exterior, the inside of the theatre is a surprisingly large and beautiful space.

The staff mentioned that the theatre was once three times its current size. Today Capitol Theatre is a lecture theatre for RMIT’s students.
