Kung Fu grindhouse double-feature Sundays were very popular at the North Battleford Capitol Theatre during the early 1970’s. Saw everything from 5 FINGERS OF DEATH, CHINESE CONNECTION, LADY KUNG FU, to TRIPLE IRONS (aka the New One-Armed Swordsmen). They were always sold out, and line-ups began early on Sunday nights. These films attracted local youths, farmers and near-by Aboriginals.

This theatre was built by the Marshall family who were Famous Players partners going back to the twenties. Their original theatre was called the Empress!
