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.   

Historic 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.

by on Apr.10, 2018, under Live Music

May 18 Satori Tree Live Show At The Capri On Main. This is an all ages show for the community put on by the band.  Word from the band: “Dancing between the lines of trance and funk, Satori Tree is a band started in 2015 by guitarist Justus Rollins, bassist Daniel “Danny B” Batson, and drummer Kolby Carrouth. Their influences range from various jam bands to hints of 80s new wave and soulful alternative. Batson is currently serving in the United States Air Force and Rollins and Carrouth have recently joined fellow Spartanburg band Irises, but the trio are looking to record and release their material in the near future.”

Dec15th $10 8pm Capri Christmas Jam, Blues Legend Mac Arnold and Plate Full O’Blues. Ugliest Sweater Contest sponsored by Primal Fitness

by on Jan.26, 2017, under Live Music

The last show sold out, so make plans to get here soon.

Mac Arnold must have known at an early age that his music career would read like a “Who’s who” of Blues/R&B Legends. His high school band “J imageFloyd & The Shamrocks” were often joined by none other than Macon, Georgia native, James Brown on piano. After deciding to pursue a professional music career, he joined the Charles Miller group until 1965 when he made the move to Chicago to work with recording artist/saxophonist A. C. Reed.

In late 1966, at age 24, came the opportunity of a lifetime to join the Muddy Waters Band and help shape the electric blues sound that inspired the rock and roll movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Regular guests of the band included Eric Clapton, Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield, and Elvin Bishop. The Muddy Waters Band (as a unit) shared the stage with the likes of Howlin’ Wolfe, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Junior Wells, Big Joe Williams, and Big Mama Thornton just to name a few. During this time, Mac played on John Lee Hooker’s “live “album, Live at the Café Au Go-Go, as well as Otis Spann’s classic recording “The Blues is Where It’s At”.

Primal Fitness will be sponsoring an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” contest tonight.  Wear your best sweater for the occasion!
