The iconic Capitol Theatre will open its doors again in the second quarter of next year, almost 17 years after it screened its last movie in 1998.

The theatre is part of the 542,000 sq ft Capitol Singapore integrated project on North Bridge Road, which will start welcoming visitors slightly earlier at the end of this year.

Its developer Capitol Investment Holdings, a joint venture comprising Perennial Real Estate Holdings' President Pua Seck Guan, Pontiac Land Group's Kwee Liong Seen and Osim's Ron Sim, said the project's building structure has been completed after two and a half years.

"By the end of this year, majority of these components will be operational. This brings us a step closer towards achieving our vision of creating an unparalleled first class integrated development that will drastically change the landscape of Singapore's civic and cultural district," said Mr Pua at a topping out ceremony at Capitol Singapore on Thursday.
