The Capitol Theatre was located in the assembly room of Homer’s Town Hall, built in 1908. The assembly room, which was 60x53 feet and had a stage with a depth of 27 feet, was converted into a movie theater in 1938, and remained in operation as the Capitol Theatre until 1955.

The address of the Homer Town Hall is 31 N Main St., Homer, NY 13077. The Capitol Theatre used the building’s main entrance, so would have had the same address.

A fairly detailed history of the Town Hall can be found on this web page, which has a single photo of the building’s Colonial Revival exterior.
