After 20 years of dormancy and a $37 million renovation, Flint's historic Capitol Theatre finally opened to the public with a ribbon-cutting and public tour on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017.

The theater — which was originally built in 1928 as a vaudeville theater, and later had lives as a movie house and music venue that hosted acts like AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and Green Day — was renovated in a partnership between Flint's Whiting venue and nonprofit the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation.
