I’m looking right at it, and this theater is open for business. The Nutcracker Suite is playing.

I’ll never forget my father taking me to The Capitol Theater for the premier of Star Wars over 30 years ago.

In the Fifties the Capitol Theater, and other properties in Charleston, were owned by the Middleberg family. Their nephew, Kelly Reed was my best friend in High School. We would see free movies and explore backstage. The, then new, CinemaScope screen was awesome. What a wonderful old movie palace. I’ll never forget it. Thanks Kelly.
