The Capitol Theater opened prior to 1926. It played mostly move-overs from the larger Warner’s Branford Theatre, located immediately adjacent to the RKO Proctor’s Theatre, and only did really good business when Proctor’s was sold out. Closed in the mid-1950’s and became one of the first John’s Bargain Stores.
