History

The Capitol had its grand reopening as the North Bay Arts Centre on April 2, 1987. The evening’s entertainment was provided by well-known singer Maureen Forrester, the Nylons and Don Harron as Charlie Farquharson.

In 1997, the name was changed to the Capitol Centre. It continues to provide North Bay and surrounding communities with quality arts and entertainment. Reminders of its origins still remain today in the form of the Spanish Galaxy motifs that adorn the theatre walls and one of the original Spanish chandeliers that hang above the stairs that rise up to the balcony.

Since its reopening, the Capitol centre has seen such greats as Johnny Cash, Phyllis Diller, Brenda Lee, Roy Orbison, and Jack Klugman; performances by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra; Broadway shows and international productions. The WKP Kennedy Gallery provides a wonderful venue for local, as well as international, visual arts shows in a wide variety of media.

About the facility

Celebrating its 40th year, the Centre for the Arts, Brock University has undergone many changes.

Originally operating as Thistle Theatre, the theatre was an extension of the Drama/Film Studies Department. Later, Thistle Theatre and the Faculty of Education Theatre were placed under the umbrella title of Brock Centre for the Arts. Thistle Theatre became The Theatre and the College of Education Theatre became the Playhouse Theatre and later changed to the David S. Howes Theatre.

In 1992, The Theatre was renamed the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre in honour of the late Father Sean O’Sullivan. Sean O’Sullivan, the first Brock graduate to receive an honourary degree, became Canada’s youngest Member of Parliament in 1972. In 1977, he left politics to join the priesthood and dedicated the rest of his life to others.

In 1993/94, on the occasion of its 25th Anniversary, the Brock Centre was renamed Centre for the Arts, Brock University.
