The Poli’s Capitol Theatre was opened on August 28, 1920 with George M. Cohan heading a vaudeville bill which also included Eddie Foy & his family. Built on the site of the Coliseum Theatre and later 1903 built Poli Theatre, it was designed by Thomas W. Lamb. It was equipped with an organ (make unknown). It was later known as the Fox-Poli Theatre before finally becoming the Loew’s Poli Theatre. Located on Main Street, this was perhaps the most elegant theatre in Hartford. Loew’s Poli Theatre was closed on September 6, 1964.
It was demolished, together with its near neighbor Loew’s Poli Palace Theatre. The site is now occupied by Bushnell Plaza.
