Previous Names: Jesse Theatre
The Jesse Theatre opened early-November 1927 with “Smile, Brother, Smile”. It was a first-run movie palace and was the only movie theatre in the D.C. area to be designed in an Atmospheric style, with ‘stars’ in the ceiling. It later went over to screening art films and in 1958 was renamed Stanton Art Theatre. By the the late-1970’s, the theatre had become an adult movie house. It was closed in the early-1990’s.
It is now a church named Capitol Temple.
