The historic Capitol Theatre, located in the Hotel Maytag Building on First Street, originally opened in 1927 as a single-screen theatre which seated 585. It was twinned in 1988. The theatre still is in operation, showing first-run films. It was part of the Central States Theatres chain and was operated by the independent Dream Star Cinemas chain. It is now independently operated.

Dream Star Cinemas no longer operates the Captiol (they are down to one two-screen theater in Pella, Iowa.) At some point the Capitol was taken over by Big Time Cinema,which operates seven houses in Iowa and two in Missouri.

The Capitol Theatre is now operated by Dawn and Paul Bleeker (DMB Dream Ventures). They were able to convert the theater to digital projection in January 2014. They also have a theater mascot, their pet pig named Joy.
