I have many fond memories of the Capitol Theatre when my husband and I worked there. To me the highlight of the season was the “Silent Movie Nights” where a guest theatre organ artist was brought in by the local theatre organ group. A theatre organ concert, sing a long and silent movie accompanied by the organ was included in the ticket price. I also remember the local organ group playing a mini concert for the senior citizens on Wednesday afternoons which also included a special old movie usually a musical. My husband wanting to make it affordable for the pensioners and only charged $1.00 admission. They loved it!
