Capitol Theatre welcomes Preds fans

A watch party for games of the Stanley Cup Finals was held Saturday and Monday night at the Capitol Theatre for Nashville Predators fans.

The theater offered a free alternative to those who couldn’t go to downtown Nashville but wanted to watch the game with a group.

The doors opened at 5:30 p.m., giving people plenty of time to arrive and get settled in before the start of the game at 7 p.m. 

By the end of Saturday night, there were about 80 fans who came to enjoy the game, as well as the community of watching in the theatre. About 200 people attended the watch party Monday.

Anyone who missed the first two viewing parties can come to the Capitol Theatre on Thursday night to watch game 5. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with concessions and beer for sale. The theater invites guests to bring their own food, but no outside alcohol will be allowed.

The theatre can fit up to 400 people in the theatre-style seating. With more advertising going into game 5, owners expect a bigger crowd.

“People started calling us this morning asking when the doors open,” said Bob Black, owner of Capitol Theatre. “We’re definitely expecting a big crowd.”

Black also said the theatre will have watch parties as long as the Predators are playing in the tournament. He predicts the Nashville hockey team will go all the way and win the Stanley Cup.

For those in the Mt. Juliet area, the Charlie Daniels Park Community Center will hold a watch party at 7 p.m.

The event is free, and concessions will be available for purchase.
