Some original architectural details remain intact in the Capitol Theatre’s auditorium, mostly on the ceiling. The floor has been leveled. Three photos can be seen in this Facebook album by local firm Vavrek Architects.

Gayle Faulkner Kosalko’s brief history of Whiting’s theaters says that the Capitol Theatre opened in 1922. Owner A.J. Obreshk was already operating the Star Theatre, which he had opened around 1917.
