The Capitol Theater, at 206 East Fifth Avenue in downtown Olympia, Washington, was built in 1924. It was designed by architect Joseph Wohleb and has a capacity of 758. Since 1986, the Olympia Film Society operates the theater.

The theater suffered major plaster damage to the ceiling during the 2001 Nisqually earthquake, but has since undergone repair and has re-opened.

The marquee, a 1940 addition, was removed in January 2008.
