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.
