Designed by celebrated architects Marion Mahony Griffin and Walter Burley Griffin, The Capitol is considered to be one of their finest interior design works.
Originally known as the Capitol Theatre, the 1924 venue was Melbourne’s most beloved cinema and one of its most treasured architectural icons for ninety years.
RMIT and Six Degrees Architects have reimagined The Capitol as a contemporary destination for culture, education and innovation, and lovingly restored many of the theatre’s original features.
It will continue to inspire and delight patrons as it has for almost a centenary, but The Capitol is now equipped to educate, collaborate and connect with the future of Melbourne’s creative community.
