This is a big year for the Capitol Theatre, which is celebrating 95 years on August 18. To commemorate this milestone, the venue will launch a new line of merchandise, which can be purchased here. The 2,000-capacity theater, known as “the original rock palace,” is located in Westchester County, only 30 miles north of NYC. Access is easy from the Metro-North and I-95.

The Cap boasts a rich history since its opening in 1926, showcasing notable musicians (and comedians) over the years, including the Grateful Dead who performed thirteen shows there in a one year span (1970-71). Other legendary performers that have taken the Cap stage include Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Ringo Starr, David Bowie and the Rolling Stones. The venue itself is aesthetically intricate, designed by famous architect Thomas Lamb. In 1984, The Capitol Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
