Tom Tomlinson is executive director of the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center, which now operates the Capitol.&nbsp; Asked if the historic venue can continue to compete with SKyPAC and WKU's Van Meter Hall, Tomlinson said "yes."</p><p>"I think it's a matter of size," said Tomlinson.&nbsp; "There are activities that are appropriate for our (SKyPAC) 1,800 seats.&nbsp; There are activities appropriate for the 1,100-seat Van Meter Hall, and then there are activities more appropriate for the 600 or so seats currently at the Capitol."</p><p>Based on community feedback, Tomlinson says there's a strong desire to see the Capitol used as an independent and/or foreign film venue, as well as an expansion of youth programs.&nbsp;</p><p>Other public meetings are planned in the coming months.
