This became a rather notorious theater in Lucknow screening audult movies. There is photo with the film being shown is "Badan Ki Aag", which means "The Body’s Fire".

The Capitol Theatre was closed by March 2012. The foyer is now in retail use, with the auditorium still intact, but unused.

For showing adult films, I suppose.

The Capitol in fact stopped showing adult films in late 2008. It was showing a daily children’s matinee co-sponsored with a Montessori school, and the evening shows would either be second-run or older movies. This remained true as of summer 2010; I haven’t been back since.

The Capitol closed sometime between August 2010 and March 2012. (I don’t know when in between.) The lobby has been converted to small shops, but the auditorium is possibly intact.

As of ~2014, auditorium is intact. I’ve passed the building since without going in, and it looks like nothing has changed.
