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.

Right, just like chocolate, and candy won`t make you fat.

I would love to see a theatre that didn’t have roof leaks. We about the same thing to happen 5 years ago but luckily the girl didn’t get injured. Her friends laughed at her, the fire retardant made her head itch and her mom experienced “emotional distress” and was hospitalized.
