Ever since we moved to Singapore mid-2011, I have wondered about the magnificent Capitol building. Why did it seem to be in a perpetual state of renovation? What was to become of it? What was its history?
After nearly 3 years of extensive refurbishment, the Capitol Theatre reopened to the public on May 19, 2015. Here’s my article exploring the past, present and future of the theatre. This article appears in the Sep-Oct’15 issue of PASSAGE (the bi-monthly magazine of the Friends of the Museums Singapore).
