Capri Theater celebrates formal reopening

1 min read

The Capri Theater celebrated its formal reopening beginning on Sunday, October 3. After being closed for two years to complete a major expansion and remodeling, the Capri welcomed guests and dignitaries as it kicked off a week of activities.

Built in 1927, the Capri is the last of 13 theaters that once graced the north side of Minneapolis. The City has worked with Capri staff over the past several years on the $12.5 million renovation and expansion that includes a 20,000 square foot addition to the theater complex, as well as significant improvements to the existing 250 seat theater.

The City provided a $700,000 forgivable loan as a key part of the project’s funding. The new theater complex boasts a Best Buy Teen Tech Center, a new community space and a gallery to highlight the work of local artists.
