Located in Caterham, today part of Greater London, on its extreme southern border. The Capitol Cinema opened in around 1929, it was designed to screen sound films and was fitted out for them with a Western Electric system in 1930. It was a project of the Lou Morris chain. The Capitol Cinema also had a cafe for the convenience of its patrons.

Always independently operated, it was closed on 13th August 1960. It was never equipped to screen CinemaScope films.

A parade of shops & offices named Quadrant House now stands on the site.

According to this webpage, the Capitol later became the Florida in 1955 and was then equipped to show films in CinemaScope.

A picture of Quadrant House can be seen here.
