The Biographical Dictionary of Architects in Canada lists the Capitol Theatre in Sarnia, Ontario, as a 1936 project by the architectural firm of Kaplan & Sprachman for Famous Players.

The Archives of Ontario has a page about the theatre which you can read at View link
That page mentions that the architect of this theatre was Mandel Sprachman.

When it was the Capitol Theatre, it was owned and operated by the Famous Players theatre circuit.
