The Capitol Avenue Theatre opened on April 14, 1951. The Capitol Avenue Theatre had a short life closing in the mid- to-late-1950’s. This was an African American theatre. Their newspaper advertisements read ‘Baton Rouge’s most modern colored theatre, completely air conditioned for your comfort. Admission 9 cents to 35 cents’. Since being demolished there has been a new church built on the site of the former theatre.

Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.
