The Capitol Theater was a smaller house, long and fairly narrow. Opened October 5, 1925 with Richard Dix in “The Lucky Devil”. It had a major makeover in the late-1950’s, glass doors, streamlined front. It was owned and operated by the Dipson chain of Batavia, NY from at least the early-1940’s on.
The Capitol Theater was inundated in the 1972 flood and was remodeled. The Chemung Canal bank aquired it in the 1980’s for an expanded parking lot. I remember it always featured films for a non-youth audience, those played the Elmira Theater across the street or the Colonial Theater two blocks west.
