The Capitol Theatre's long history began over ninety years ago with Frederick Mercy, Sr.'s vision of a grand vaudeville theatre located in downtown Yakima. Construction on his dream project began in 1919. After a fire destroyed most of the building in 1975, the theatre was rebuilt and continues to entertain people with concerts, plays, ballets, etc.
