The Capitol in the 1930s and 1940s was apparently the only movie theatre in Malden which was independent and not run by the Middlesex Amusement Company. Further information welcomed.

The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Capitol in Malden has an exterior photo dated 1941. The theatre’s entrance was in a large commercial building at least 2 or 3 stories high. There was a rectangular marquee with a large capitol dome on the front and smaller domes at the top of each side. The wide entrance contains 3 steps up from the sidewalk. There are poster cases on each side, and hanging from a line along the bottom edge of the marquee are cloth or paper flyers. The Report states that the Capitol has been a MGM customer for 15 years, that it was built about 1910, is in Fair condition and has 320 seats on the main floor and 300 in the balcony, total: 620 seats.
