Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

This became a rather notorious theater in Lucknow. A photo can be seen below. The film being shown is "Badan Ki Aag", which means "The Body’s Fire".

The Capitol Theatre was closed in the early-2010’s.

“Notorious” for what reason(s)?

For showing adult films, I suppose.

A sibling of the Fair Theatre in East Elmhurst, NY, USA?

The Capitol in fact stopped showing adult films in late 2008. It was showing a daily children’s matinee co-sponsored with a Montessori school, and the evening shows would either be second-run or older movies. This remained true as of summer 2010; I haven’t been back since.

The Capitol closed sometime between August 2010 and March 2012. (I don’t know when in between.) The lobby has been converted to small shops, but the auditorium is possibly intact.
