The Capri Theater was part of the Martin Theater chain in the early-1980’S. Other Martin theaters in Morristown at that time were the Princess Theater and the Volunteer Twin Theater. After being closed for many years, the Capri Theater was rebuilt and opened as the Paradigm Cinemas (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The Volunteer Theatre isn’t currently listed on Cinema Tresures. Do you have any information on it?

Do you have a street address for the Capri? The only Martin operation I have been able to locate so far in Hamblen County was the Princess on First Street in Morristown.

Multiple sources on the Internet say that the Capri Theatre was rebuilt into the Paradigm Cinemas after having been closed for many years.

When I worked there in the early 90s, it was Capri Four (with four screens). At the time, it was a Carmike theater. And years later, it did become Paradigm.

I watched several movies there. In 1979, Dad took us there to see The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again. In 1983, I watched Superman III there. In 1987, I watched Superman IV and Monster Squad there and in 1997, I watched Batman & Robin there. That was the last time I went there. The Capri Theater began with only 1 theater. They built a second theater, and in 1983, they built an extra 2 theaters which made it have four theaters. Their name was the ‘Capri Twin’ but after the two new theaters were added, they changed their name to ‘Capri Four’.
