              <p>Before being renovated with stadium seating in 2005, this auditorium had seating for 522.  It originally had 70mm projection capability, and as each auditorium in Park Lane had a unique name, was named “Paradise.”</p>
              <p>It was renamed “Capitol” a year later, due to the efforts of Halifax’s mayor Ron Wallace, who had worked as an usher at that iconic Halifax theatre, which was demolished in 1974.</p>
