The auditorium of the Capitola Theater was constructed with a laminated wood arched roof. It opened August 6, 1948 and was under the same family ownership/operation until its closure as a full-time movie house in the mid-1990’s. The Capitola Theater was a much-loved double-feature bargain theatre serving all of Santa Cruz County. If you didn’t want to pay top price at the other theatres in the county, you could usually wait several months and your film would play the "Cap."
At times threatened with demolition, the theater was rescued by a group of local opera artists, who built a stage in front of the screen and presented opera there with success, as well as screening movies to fill in spaces in their schedule. It was closed in 2006, and was demolished in May 2010.
