The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
How to get there

Went and saw 9 to 5 the musical, the show was sensational and Casey Donovan made the show.First time I have been to the Capitol Theatre, beautiful old world charm about it. We chose the VIP package, was well worth it and the staff were all so friendly and made you feel welcome..

Attended a show there in November - the booking was easy; staff support at the venue was polite and professional. We purchased the additional cheeses, meats and sparkling wine package - worth every cent. It was also nice to see people in Sydney prepared to share an area with you pre show to enjoy a drink, and be so friendly after we have been in lockdown for so long. The bonus was that the show ('Come From Away') was also excellent.

Thoroughly enjoyed this fabulous show which tells the true story of the 38 planeloads that landed at Gander, Newfoundland after the terrorist incident on 11 Sept 2001.

I've been to the Capitol Theatre a few times to see Wicked, Lion King and now Frozen.
I actually saw Frozen twice, both times splurged on Front Row Seats and they were amazing.
I'm not sure what other front row seats are like for other shows but seeing Frozen so close up was magical.
My 5yo also sat in the front row with a booster and had no issues at all.
We had an amazing time and loved every minute of the show.

The theatre itself is gorgeous and the staff were amazing.

This is a wonderful theatre, to see the big shows at, in the dress circle, the seats are very well angled and ensure an excellent view, for us row B, (providing plenty of leg space) is preferred to A as the railing can disrupt the view.

The staff throughout the theatre were unfailingly friendly and helpful, which made the co-vid situation much easier.

The show frozen was superb-go if you get the chance before it ends in May 2021.

i regularly visit the Capital Theatre for shows and was not disappointed once again. the Theatre is a beautiful building and the COVID restrictions were well advised and policed. Masks were worn during the performance and in the foyers.
The show was fantastic. Seats are becoming uncomfortable now but this did not detract from the show.

The old world charm of this beautiful theatre. Lots to look at. We saw the musical Frozen and we had amazing box seats. You can really lose yourself here. A step back in time. It’s wonderful this iconic theatre is still here for us all to enjoy. The staff are warm and friendly with amazing customer service skills. Well done can’t wait to return.

I didn't go in, just hanged around outside.
Just hanging around outside can transport me to the past but only up to a point.
Need to put on the internet more old photos of the people who entertained in Capitol Theatre Campbell St, Haymarket; this will enhance my imagination when I hang around outside the Capitol Theatre in Campbell St, Haymarket.
