Capri Construction Update – September 2020

After nearly 11 years in the making, the expansion and renovation of the Capri will be completed in October. The project includes renovation of the 250-seat main auditorium, a new 125-seat Paradise Community Hall, classroom, rehearsal and meeting space and a Best Buy Teen Tech Center, all in the heart of North Minneapolis.   

“Though we face many operational uncertainties, we are thrilled to mark the end of the construction phase and the beginning of the “Welcome to the Capri” phase this fall,” said James Scott, Director of the Capri.

While plans for a big grand opening are on hold due to COVID, various avenues to introduce the new Capri to the community are in the works. Capri programming considerations include a virtual Legends concert and in-person and virtual tours of the space.

Capri rental spaces will also be available this fall if/as COVID considerations allow. “We won’t know exactly what “open” will look like, but be assured that the safety and comfort of our audiences and clients is at the center of every decision we make as we move forward,” said James Scott.
