Shortly after the Capitol closed (Sat 18 Jan 1936) on 22 January 1936 The Era reported:

“Many difficulties will confront the architects responsible for the rebuilding of the Capitol, Haymarket. There is an old stream under the site, for one, then the present circle will be extended to make a false roof.

It is unnecessary to the new cinema and the LCC will not allow the commercial use of a space above an auditorium."

This would suggests that there were no offices over the Gaumont. Or were there?

I have just (19.06.2016) uploaded a photograph of the organ in the church where it has been since 1960. Although modified, it retains much of its original pipework and some effects.

What a gorgeous exterior to this cinema, yet again its a shame what we got left with and now even that has gone!
