Opened as the National Theatre December 22, 1902. it became the Shubert Theatre prior to 1913. It went through several name changes and became Fay’s Vaudeville Theatre in 1916. By 1918 it was a 1st-run movie theatre named Fays Theatre. On October 20, 1930 it was renamed Capitol Theatre. During the 1940’s, as I remember it, the name on the early-20th Century marquee read “Comerford’s Capitol”. I have fond memories of going there often as a child with my parents. The Capitol Theatre was closed on December 31, 1979. It was demolished in 1980.
