These two above comments make me want to pack now!!! Is someone filming the day to day work do you think? It would make quite a DVD passed out to opening night crowd.

Agree with the two of you. I can see beyond the ruins of the theater. There is so much beauty there as the pictures above proves. We need a savior not a wrecking ball!!!

Thank you David…. It was worth the wait….I felt I was almost there. The powers of presentation sure knew how to show a special film like this one. I remember seeing “The Robe” in Chicago for the first film in Cinemascope at my neighborhood Balaban & Katz Marbro theater and had the same magical feeling. The theaters where these epics played were just so much part of the whole experience…

Why Tilden? Is that a name of a person? Or a place?

I only hope by the time 2014 comes around the US ecomomy improves. Otherwise at 50+ dollars a seat, it might be hard to fill the theatre seats night after night being more of a threat than TV in the 1950’s.

It is so wonderful to read all of these dates and I enjoy them so. In many ways you keep the Loew’s Capitol stll “alive”. Thank you.

Thanks for pix’s. This theater must have been a stunner when it opened and operated!

May I suggest Cinema Treasure name tags with our names. I expect it to be as exciting as it was years ago when the theater opened its doors for the first time. Actually more exciting because so many palaces were opening in the 1920’s it was “common” to see what one would outdo the other. This will be a real Phoenix rising from the ashes!

It is indeed confirmed fact. The organ was removed from the home in Il. and is on its way to Oklahoma before being shipped out east. I can hardly wait to attend the re-opening in 2014. That will quite a night!

Just heard the organ that graced the theater at the opening was just returned to the Loew’s Kings from the owner in Illinois. It will be shipped to Oklahoma for a restoration before coming home to the King’s. Isn’t that great news?
