The Moose Jaw Cultural Centre started out as a movie theater called the Allen Theater. When architect James McTeague designed the original building in 1913, it was supposed to be called the Monarch Theater. Due to World War I, construction was delayed and the building was not completed until the Allen Theater Chain took over the project. They named it the Allen Theater which opened on August 19, 1916. In 1922 it became the Capitol Theater. In 1929 the Capitol Theater was upgraded for sound movies.
It remained a single screen theater until 1982. In 1983 two more screens were added and seating was reduced from 910 to 652. The name was changed to the Capitol 3 Theater. As a movie theater the Capitol Theater closed in August of 2001. The theater is now used for concerts and live performances.
