I struck gold! I was researching today for a doc I’m producing and Diane at the Museum showed me an old postcard of the 1934 blizzard with the Empress and Palace marquees visible.

I’ll post them later today as well as photocopies of pics (the person didn’t want to donate) of the Capitol’s exterior and INTERIOR! Not ornate at all.

It was originally built as an Art Deco facade department store.

Believing is not definitive. You should go to the library/local history room and look up the directories under “theaters” and find when it stopped being listed.

Ross, Danbury. Found all the old ones in the city directory. Others too.

“Ken and the site’s contributors have now added every cinema to have ever operated in the London/Greater London area, making this the first city on Cinema Treasures to have a fully comprehensive listing.”

You may want to rephrase that as I’ve cross referenced all years in city directories in my area for any and all theaters to present day.

Been waiting a week for that! I purposely posted mine as a few before 30k hoping for a piece. Oh well. Congrats all!

In response to an old post on here about “the rumble of the trains and the Dead’s music causing plaster dust to fall down”…this may be true. Documented on Closing of Winterland DVD and in several GD books and interviews, Phil Lesh’s bass was homemade and one time during soundcheck, he hit the perfect note and a huge chunk of plaster fell from the ceiling.

The name of the music store is Stolen Moments, but the address is 39 Cedar and yet you and CinemaTour have 32 Cedar Street.
