Victor Rigaumont designed the Grecian style Capitol Theatre for Rowland & Clark Theatres in 1922. It launched June 18, 1923 with a Peloubet Reed pipe organ and the film, “Wandering Daughters.”

Ken, the 1982 photo depicts the second Capitol Theatre, aka Times Theatre, which has been demolished. I linked to a photo of it in Boxoffice on the second Capitol page, and it’s the same building in the 1982 photo. Nobody has found a picture of the first Capitol yet.

If you look at the building at 845, and then pan across the street, that would be 840. Doesn’t look like the 1982 building at all.

One source listed the capacity at 1,571. No other details except that 838 Braddock Avenue, the nearest address listed on the county real estate web site, is owned by the Braddock Commons Corp.
