The Capitol Theatre in Whitehall, New York (Birthplace of the U.S. Navy) opened in the late-1910’s. By 1941 it was part of the Schine Circuit. It was closed around 1970 (as far as I can tell!!) For a small town of approx. 4,000, it had an excellent selection of films and great popcorn!! My movie going there was in the late-1950’s to late-1960’s. I always remember them having good prints and a good movie-going atmosphere. The manager was Mr. Loomis and he kept the kids quiet. I owe my appreciation of classic films to the many Saturday and Sunday afternoons at the Capitol Theatre. I understand that a local garage stores cars there now.
