Directions and Parking :
The Capitol Theatre is conveniently located in Downtown Maryville at
127 W. Broadway Maryville, TN 37081

Downtown Maryville has ample free public parking. There are various lots around the theatre. However, the lot directly across the street in the front always quickly fills up on weekends. There are also garage parking levels beneath this lot, and an elevator. We highly recommend parking in the Harper Street garage which has plenty of spaces that are most always available. Harper Street runs behind the theatre. Turn into the garage entrance on Harper Street. Walk out the main level to Broadway, and make a short walk to your left to the front of the Capitol and our lobby entrance. Guests can drop off/pick up attendees that needs assistance in front of the venue.

A special room block is available at the Hilton Knoxville Airport. Please contact the Hilton at (865) 970-4300, option 2, and mention the Gatsby Gala. Complimentary transportation is available to and from the event.
