I am the poster of the You Tube Taylorville tour from 1988. Yes, the Capitol Theater was an important part of my youth as I grew up in Taylorville. I was disappointed at the destruction of the theater, but glad that most of the building facade(at least the main part) was kept, but the rest of the building was razed. Pictures of the building as it was are difficult to come by.

I found this interesting YouTube video that someone posted, of a 1988 drive through of Taylorville, IL. You can see the theater at 7:45-55. The owner of the film indicates when he drives past it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSmkxi9XoUc

A Wurlitzer theater organ opus 667 style 160X was installed in the Capitol Theater on 9/25/1925. Status: Parts – some or all of the organ has been dispersed.
