A lot of blockbusters played at the Capri Triple. From “Raiders of the Lost Ark” to “E.T.”,and even “Back to the Future”. The original “Batman” played here first-run as well.

Correction: The Capri Triple Theatres opened to the public on November 21,1979 as High Point’s first-ever triplex cinema. This theatre did not open in 1976,but it opened in 1979. I have the ads from its grand opening that were in the 11/21/1979 edition of the High Point Enterprise. The information concerning this cinema will be updated. It closed around 1999 or 2000.
