The closing date for the Capitol is incorrect. According to the November 4, 1972 edition of the Edmonton Journal, Famous Players would shut down the Capitol on November 5 that year following its final feature, Super Fly. There was no listing for the Capitol in the November 6 edition of the Journal, so the shutdown date given in the Journal is the correct one.

When my dad told that cost 10 cent a movie in 40’s and 50’s at old Capitol Theatre. It was demolished theatre in 1972, to build new Capitol Square building and it open it late 1975 with mulitplex cinemas, I use to see movies many time at Capitol Square cinemas and it was busiest theatre in first run movies. This is my favorite theatre, good sound, comforoable seating ang screens are large.
Famous Players sold to Cineplex Odeon due financial difficult in 1995 and Cineplex closed it for good due financilal difficult too in 1998. It was sad to see theatre closed and it switch to Epcor Centre office space in 2000.
