It was also (and I believe last) called the Guild Theatre.

Boxoffice, April 24, 1961: “Paul Anderson of Jordon & Anderson has opened the Capri Theatre, a subsequent-run house in the southeast part of Denver. The Capri had been closed for several years”

Boxoffice, Oct. 6, 1961: “Lew Sher, president of the Art Cinema Guild, was in for the opening of their new Capri Theatre. The Capri formerly was a subsequent-run house playing regular domestic films. Bill Ramsey will manage the house in addition to the sister Vogue Theatre situated in the same section of Denver”

Boxoffice, Aug. 13, 1962: “The Art Cinema Guild … operates the Vogue, Capri and Paris art houses in Denver … The police department seems confused on the subject of censorship. "The Immoral West” opened at the Capri Theatre but was taken out when police officers said they believed it to be immoral. The picture has now opened at the downtown Victory Theatre with no action being taken by the police"

The Capri advertised in the Denver Post, through at least May 1963, with the address of 1028 S. Gaylord.
