Many memories here at the “CAPRI”! First recalled as a child, seeing “GUYS AND DOLLS”“(1955); and the last movie I saw there at the re-named "PARK”, was the re-issued and restored epic “GIANT”(1956),(before this classic theatre became the “PUSSYCAT”!!). In the ‘50’s, 60’s and 70’s, when it was the “CAPRI”, it ran the 'BIG ROADSHOW’ versions of the latest BIG attractions, (when most of us ‘dressed up’ to go out ANYWHERE!!) I remember AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS", “BEN-HUR”, and “KING OF KINGS”, to name a few. In those days they had their parking lot next to it on the UNIVERSITY AVENUE side, where , on it’s north wall, a ‘POSTER-PAINTING’ of the latest film, as it would play for MONTHS at a time! Also saw the premiere there of “THE LAST PICTURE SHOW”, IN 1971.
