Operated by Famous Players, this theatre opened on November 28 1941 with 1,025 seats. It was twinned in 1984 and closed around 2000. It was converted to a dinner theatre with a medieval knights theme. This has since closed and the building was demolished in June 2014.

Emmanuel Briffa was the decorator of the Capitol Theatre. The architect was Jay English. It is on this list of his works simply as: “FORT WILLIAM, ONT., theatre for Famous Players Co., Brodie Street, 1941.”
