The June 9, 1958, issue of Boxoffice said that the Capitol Theatre in McKeesport, which had been dark for several years, was to be converted into a bingo parlor.

I think the Capitol Theater became a Duck Pin bowling alley in the 1960s.

The Capitol Theatre was in operation by 1917 under the name Lyric Theatre. It was mentioned in an article about the recent sale of the Dreamland Theatre in McKeesport to Frank Panopolis and George Lambru, operators of the Lyric. The article appeared in the March 3, 1917, issue of The Moving Picture World.
