About this grant

This grant increase will support design and coordination work to outfit the historic Capitol Theatre with an augmented technical equipment package and additional modifications needed to maximize the theater experience for patrons and the community. The installation of a mechanical pit and lighting and sound enhancements will increase the efficiencies and flexibility of the theater’s performance spaces. Once fully operational, the theater has the capacity to attract between 60,000 and 80,000 visitors annually. The Flint Cultural Center Corporation, the supported organization of the Flint Cultural Center Foundation, will operate the theater.
