Previous Names: Allen Theatre
Opened as the Allen Theatre on December 2, 1918. On October 29, 1923 this house had been acquired by Famous Players and was renamed the Capitol Theatre. Following a major remodeling in 1938, the theatre boasted that its new marquee, with 2,000 lights, was Canada’s largest. From 1952 to 1957, the Capitol Theatre also served as the first home of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
With the declining popularity of big downtown theatres, the Capitol Theatre was closed on November 5, 1972 with Ron O'Neal in “Superfly”. It was demolished, along with several adjacent buildings, to make way for the mixed use Capitol Square project, which included a four screen multiplex cinema. This multiplex, too, has now been closed.
