A little history…


The Capitol Theatre, designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb, opened on Wednesday, August 18, 1926 as a dignified playhouse with great decorative beauty and luxurious comfort. The open letter to Port Chester residents published in the newspaper that week boasted that it would contain “the only theater refrigerating system in Westchester County.” The grand opening, which included a performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” by a ten-piece orchestra and a showing of Sea Wolf, sold out all of its seats (then 2,000), and had to turn hundreds away. People traveled from near and far to see shows at The Capitol. Hollywood kept the theater going for decades with films like Casablanca, Gone with the Wind and The Taming of the Shrew. Enthusiasts could pay as little as 5 cents to see a double-feature Sunday matinee.

By the late ’60s, the tone had changed. Movies were out and live music was in. The theater was renovated as a psychedelic performance space, and it hosted just about every major rock and roll act of that time period. Under the direction of rock promoter Howard Stein, the likes of Janis Joplin, Traffic, Pink Floyd, and the Grateful Dead all graced the Port Chester stage during its heyday. By the early ’70s, however, the theater was shut down due to a new village ordinance that prohibited live entertainment after 1 a.m. It was at this time that Mother Nature became the sole owner of The Capitol Theatre. The roof decayed, and pigeons made the stage their new home. The theater remained dark until the early ’80s.

In 1983, The Capitol Theatre was purchased by local developer Marvin Ravikoff and a new round of renovations began. On Wednesday, March 7, 1984, The Capitol Theatre was open for business again. Only a quarter of the theater was filled for its grand opening performance of Misalliance that night, but Ravikoff had no doubt the revived theater would be a success. In 1984, The Capitol Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Capitol Theatre was mainly used to put on plays and musicals during the mid-’80s, and it underwent continuous renovations for several years. There was a brief resurgence of rock concerts in the early ’90s when well-known acts like Phish and Blues Traveler visited the Port Chester stage. However, due to the poor economy at the time, it was difficult for any theater to thrive, and the small size of The Capitol no longer appealed to top-name entertainment. Ravikoff turned in a different direction and hoped to attract conventions and seminars instead. Eventually, the idea to turn the theater into a catering hall for weddings and formal events came about.

Since 1997, the theater has hosted special events ranging from fund-raisers to bar mitzvahs. Removing the seats from the main floor allowed the theater to be transformed into a dance floor for weddings or a dining area for corporate blowouts. The Capitol’s stage made it unlike any other catering hall, and it lent itself to private performances from acts like Hootie and the Blowfish and Katy Perry.

In December 2011, Peter Shapiro announced that The Capitol Theatre would reopen with him at the helm, and the venue began yet a third round of serious renovations. Previously the owner of the legendary Wetlands Preserve in Manhattan and currently the owner of the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Shapiro has no shortage of experience when it comes to running successful live music venues. He planned to breathe new life into the historical theater—with state-of-the-art light, sound and video systems, and new carpets, repainted walls and upgraded bathrooms. The Capitol Theatre, partnered with concert promoter The Bowery Presents, reopened in September 2012 as Westchester’s new premier rock palace.

What would you do with 31.76 acres in Fairfield County?

0 JUNE ROAD (3LOTS) STAMFORD, CT 06903

Nestled up against the magnificent Mianus River Gorge Preserve, with 900+ acres of protected land, this real estate land listing is a serenity seeker’s dream come true. Purchase the land as a whole or choose from three subdivided lots, there are endless possibilities to build and develop. What would you do with all of this land in such a spectacular location? Here is what Christian Perry would do:

“I love this piece of property because it is the best of both worlds with access to the City of Stamford on one side and the Town of Greenwich on the other. When I think about what I would personally do with this type of property, it’s without question, take advantage of the valley views! I would start by building a modern Hollywood Hills-style dream home for entertaining that features the view from each level. I would create a meandering long driveway and uplight the landscaping to create an enchanted forest. Peaceful, quiet, and private would be the best way to describe the lifestyle that would be achieved with this location and space. On lot 2 I would build a second home for family members or use it as a guest house. I would also build a tennis court and barn for our house and keep lot 3 for agriculture. I would plant a lush English or Japanese-style garden, and also use the land on lot three for farming or a nursery. What I like about this option is that the land acts as a buffer from any other development and keeps the multi-generation family compound ultimately private. Anyone who loves nature, Equine culture, and the Greenwich area would be very happy here.”
