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

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.
