Styles: Romanesque Revival
Previous Names: Canton Opera House
The Canton Opera House opened on the town square in dowtown Canton in 1891, designed in sturdy Neo-Romanesque style, including a large arched entranceway. In the 1920’s, the opera house was transformed into the Capitol Theatre, a movie house.
After closing as a movie theatre sometime in the 1980’s, the former lobby space was converted into retail space, and the auditorium used as a storage area.
In 2000, the historic building was converted into offices, and its exterior restored, including the removal of the boxy Capitol marquee and the addition of awnings over the ground floor level windows. The building became known as the Opera House Professional Center. It was demolished in October 2017.
