Ceiling Falls On Audience At Capitol Theatre
CHAMBERSBURG, PA — On last Saturday night, during a live performance about education, an approximately 10 foot wide by 4 foot tall chuck of the plaster ceiling in the center of the auditorium at the Capitol Theatre broke loose and came crashing down on patrons sitting in the audience.
At least one victim was hospitalized and at least one other required medical attention.
Supposedly the building had been inspected just a few days before. The area had experienced severe rain all day but first reports claim the problem had nothing to do with roof leaks.
The theatre plans to make repairs and re-open.
