I would say that the marquee is art deco. I don’t know about the rest of it. The building may still be standing.

I haven’t been able to find an address or its current status.

Modern Photo. Status: closed. The building still stands and is vacant. The theater building is on the left. The red object should be the marquee.

Here is a picture of the Capitol not long after it opened, from Boxoffice of September 10, 1938. A March 12, 1938, Boxoffice item had said that the new theater being built at Larder Lake was one of two projects designed by Toronto architect Herbert G. Duerr. The other project was an extensive remodeling of the Strand Theatre at Kirkland Lake.
