ven·ue ˈvenˌyo͞o/ noun  Listening Room
1. The place to enjoy the arts, see performances, esp. an organized event such as a concert, conference, or a community event.

A cornerstone of downtown for almost a century. Clemson Small Business Development and many other Downtown research and development groups all agree that the  Capri Theatre has been a driving force, a “Catalyst” and has BLAZED THE TRAIL for the downtown revitalization effort. Here at the Capri Theatre we offer many options that include Live comedy/music and theatrical performances. Premieres of local independent films shot right here in the upstate are shown often giving film enthusiast a chance to meet the actors and directors of the films.

We are also available for corporate, civic, receptions and special events, please check calendar for dates.

Our bands and performers are from all over the eastern U.S and some international. Our performers have been seen on Sun Studio Sessions, Austin City Limits, Music City Roots, TV talk shows and Major Music Festivals all over performing their originals.   

gofundmeHistoric Capri Theatre “Capri on Main” in downtown Gaffney has reached its 80th year of continuous operation and hopes to keep on going to hit its 100 year anniversary but needs your help with getting there. This fall/winter season with high winds and heavy rains was brutal on the aging roof and needs some TLC. The Capri Theatre opened in 1936 and operated as a movie theatre for 72 years. Single-screen movie theaters are difficult at best to find today and very few exist in their original downtown setting. It is believed to be one of the oldest theaters still in operation in the Southeast. 

The Capri Theatre is a venue/listening room for FAMILY and ALL AGES to attend special events and performances, not a bar or private night club with set hrs every night so please scroll down or click the FB links or here for our calendar of events.
