AMC Classic Springfield 1

The Capitol Theatre was opened in 1939 and was operated by the Crescent Amusement Co. This theatre became known as Cinema 1, although there is no mention of a Cinema 2. By early-2017 it had been renamed AMC Classic Springfield 1. It was closed by AMC on March 15, 2018 with “Black Panther” when 105 people tuned up to see the final movie.

This theatre is owned by Carmike Cinemas, I went up there not long ago to replace an intermitten movement in a Norelco fp20. Left to go to hell by Carmike, it is still is a preety place.

Article on the closing apparently AMC had put some work in to it before shutting it down. https://smokeybarn.com/springfield-movie-theater-closing-after-nearly-a-century-of-operation/ Hopefully someone like new vision theaters will pick it up.
