There is a photo of a building at 311 N. Polk on this site. I don’t know if it’s the former Capitol:

I don’t remember what my source was when I added the theater. I can’t tell you if it was N. or S.

Here is an article from the Albuquerque Tribune dated 12/21/54:

AMARILLO, Tex., Dec. 21â€"An early morning fire that apparently had been smoldering for hours gutted the Capitol Theater in downtown Amarillo today. A score of guests in an adjoining second floor hotel fled to safety. A small jewelry store and barber shop flanking the lobby of the theater were damaged badly by smoke and water. The fire began in the back of the building from a still undetermined cause.
