My father is Charley Gray who owned and operated this cinema in it’s ‘Charley Gray’s’ capacity. I would love to speak to anyone who has any documentation/information or better still, any remaining signage/insiginia etc from the cinema.

The Capital is OPEN and has been continuously for a number of years. It currently screens subtitled Bollywood films though has also recently hosted the Date Palm Film Festival (middle eastern films) and has also shown some screenings of the incredible film festival. The current operator has upgraded the seating and speaker system and the building now sports cell phone signal repeaters on its roof.

All the remining vintage theatres around the Auckland area are all protected heritage buildings. The current mayor Dick Hubbard wants them all to be preserved for future generations.

Sad that in New York we can’t save any theatres :(
