Capitol Theatre

Opened September 5, 1927, served both as a movie theatre and a light opera house. By the 1940’s, the theatre’s role was beginning to wane, with Famous Players opting to screen movies in a larger venue. In the 1960’s through to early-1980’s, it was used primarily as an auction hall and furniture storage. Efforts to restore the building began in 1988, it reopened fully restored, as an entertainment venue.
