Opened as the Cort Theatre in 1911, with live stage productions. In 1918 it was renamed the Curran Theatre. In 1921 it was renamed Century Theatre and in 1922, the Morosco Theatre. In 1923 it was renamed Capitol Theatre and by 1927 was operated by William Fox.

In the 1930’s it became a popular downtown burlesque house, home of the Capitol Follies. It closed in June 1941 and was torn down.
