CAPITOL Theatre; Brownsville, Texas.

The Capitol Theatre was opened February 14, 1928 with William Boyd in “Two Arabian Knights”. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell. It was closed April 30, 1966.

There was talk in recent years about it reopening, but in 2015, it sits boarded up.

I don’t believe the theatre ever opened. There is no webpage that I can find anywhere- the link above for the BSPA’s restoration page no longer exists. At the Brownsville Society for the Performing Arts page ( they make no mention of the Capitol – instead they are focusing on renovating another historic building as their new academy. The Google Street View (2014) shows the building still boarded up.
