Opened as an airdome in September 1925. A retractable roof was constructed in 1928 which was later made permanent. In the early-1940’s, the Capitol Theatre was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary E.J. Sparks. It was still open in the early-1960’s when I saw “Caltiki, the Imortal Monster”, “Slightly Scarlet”, and “Marilyn” there. In 1965 it was briefly renamed Family Theatre. Later it started showing showing more risque movies like “Promises, Promises”. Finally operating as the 1st Street Theatre. It was demolished in 1968.
It was located just north of downtown near Williams Park.
