The May family took over the Capitol from Famous Players in 1982 and later ran it as part of May Theatres (1984) Ltd. until the Capitol closed in 2001.

I guess she didn’t actually paint it. Her gallery is selling the painting.

Beginning in the 1950’s newer recreation centers were constructed on most military bases in Canada. These combined gyms, snack bars, bowling alleys, game rooms, theatres, convenience stores, etc, etc in one large facility. Prior to that many base theatres were often in any leftover structure that could be adapted for the purpose, some dating from the onset of WWII. If you think the theatres were bad, you should have seen some of the leftover WWII barracks. Can you say firetrap?

When I visited lovely Moose Jaw in the winter of 67-68,I remember two operating theaters.Obviously you got the one,which was the other?Both were near the Simpson-Sears downtown.There was also two theaters in the thrilling burg of Swift Current.One large,one small.There was also a theater at the airforce base near MJ.Canadian bases didn’t have great theaters like some US facilities.I remember one CF theater was a quonset hut.
