Opened as the Allen Theatre on December 2, 1918, by 1929 this house had been acquired by Famous Players and been renamed the Capitol Theatre. Following a major remodeling in 1938, the theatre boasted that its new marquee, with 2,000 lights, was Canada’s largest. From 1952 to 1957, the Capitol Theatre also served as the first home of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
With the declining popularity of big downtown theatres, the Capitol Theatre was closed in 1971 and, in 1972, was demolished, along with several adjacent buildings, to make way for the mixed use Capitol Square project, which included a four screen multiplex cinema. This multiplex, too, has now been closed.
