Opened in 1912 as the Isis Theatre, it later became the USA Theatre. This became the city’s second Orpheum Theatre in 1919, and was designed by George Rapp, of the architectural firm Rapp & Rapp. After the third Orpheum Theatre was built in 1927, this theatre became the Capitol Theatre from December 25, 1928. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary A.H. Blank. It was modernised in 1942 to the plans of architectural firm Wetherell & Harrison.
The Capitol Theatre was torn down in the late-1960’s or early-1970’s. A JC Penney’s store was built on the site. That has since closed and is now a museum.
