“The Capitol Theatre opened its doors on Barrington Street at the foot of Spring Garden Road, on October 31, 1930. Known for its extravagant architecture and lush decor, the theatre was very popular in the hey-dey of cinema. The Capitol Buildng was built by Brookfield construction and also housed Maritime Telegraph and Telephone Company offices and a shoe store. It was demolished in 1974 by MT&T to make room for the Maritime Centre high-rise tower.”
