FLINT (WJRT) (12/7/2017) - The Capitol Theater is no longer another vacant building with lots of potential in downtown Flint.
The historic building reopened to the public on Thursday, welcoming people through the doors for the first time in more than 20 years.
Lt. Gov. Brian Calley was among those on hand for a ribbon cutting to officially mark the end of a $37 million renovation.
The Whiting, Flint Cultural Center Corp. and UpTown Reinvestment Corp. have been involved in the renovation and restoration project to bring the Italian Renaissance building back to life.
The 1,600-seat theater will serve as an entertainment venue, booking concerts, comedy shows and performing arts events in the future. Everyone who walked through the doors has been excited about what they see.
