Capitol Theater

The Capitol Theater was in existence from 1922 until the early 1970’s, when it was purchased and refurbished. Spelling seems to vary between Capitol and Capital, unless there were two theaters with this name in Delphos.

The Capitol Theater was closed in the early-1970’s and was converted into a furniture showroom. They moved out of the building, and by 2007, it was sitting vacant.

A suit filed in Allen county common pleas court by the R. C. A. Phototone company against Ellsworth mentioned in the Herald Thursday, has no connection with the Capitol Theatre in Delphos, or its owner, F. H. Staup.
The suit concerns R. C. A. Phototone equipment purchased for the
Wauseon theatre which was later sold by Ellsworth and Paul Staup
with the understanding that the purchasers would assume the deferred
obligations, which they have failed to do. The suit has no connection
with the local theatre.
