“THE EMIGRANTS” is breaking Box office records at this Cinema,going on the Fourth Month! Also playing June 3 1973 was “HITLER LAST TEN DAYS” 3 weeks and “SLITHER” all have restricted type ratings even though they were PG in the States.Noticed they had their own standards.

This theatre opened in 1972 with veteran Famous Players executive Mr. A.E. “Bert” Brown as its dedicated Manager. This theatre was considered to be the most important theatre Famous Players had outside of Toronto!! First rate theatres and theatre operation, I was proud to have received initial theatre management training from this gentleman!

Was very proud to work for Bert Brown at the Capitol Square Cinemas for almost four years.
