Backstory and Context
Built as a vaudeville and opulent movie house in 1921, the Capitol features a large, ornate auditorium with seating on the main floor, two balconies and box seats on the side walls and an equally decorative lobby. The theater, restored in 1987 now serves as the Capitol Civic Centre, a 1,169-seat community performing arts center.
