Treasure - The Capitol Theatre - The HDR Experience by Philip Johnson

Treasure - The Capitol Theatre - The HDR Experience by 


Sydney was once the home of many Theatre Palaces, unfortunately through the years these grand old buildings gave way to so called “Progress”.

Well at least a few survived such is the case with the Capitol Theatre in Sydney’s Haymarket district, and has had many purposes including a circus site.

Here is one of the staircases beautifully resored, I walked past the theatres entrance and initially thought they would not let me in the foyer with a camera so i asked and this is the result.

The Capitol reinvents the atmosphere of the 1930s with all its opulence, but incorporates modern elements with style and elegance. The Capitol features an exterior from 1892, when it was the new Belmore market building.

The refurbished Capitol Theatre offers the public a unique theatre experience, as the only atmospheric cinema in the country restored and fully developed to a major lyric theatre and achieves the preservation of a vital piece of Australian theatre and architectural history

Capitol Theatre:

Equipment:Nikon D300 sigma 10-20mm lens
