Opened in around 1910 as the Capitol Theatre, by a 1941 listing in the Film Daily Yearbook it was known as the State Theatre remaining as such into the 1950’s when it closed.

By 1975 it had re-opened as the Cinema Art Theatre and was screening adult porn movies. It has since been demolished and the site is a parking lot.

The April 5, 1913, issue of The Moving Picture World mentioned a “Capital” Theatre on East Washington Street in Springfield. The owners, I. Burnstine and Joseph Shepard, were planning to open a new theater at 111 N. Sixth Street. Perhaps that was the house that was opened that year as the Amuse U Theatre, which we list at 115 N.Sixth.
