The Capitol Theater at 139 Common St. in Lawrence, near the intersection of Jackson St. opened in 1928 and operated until 1956. It was advertised as “The first Theater in the world built for talking pictures.”

In the MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Broadway Theater in Lawrence, the Capitol (and the Palace) is listed as a competing theater. Likewise, the Capitol (and the Broadway) is listed as a competing theater for the Palace. This was in May 1941. For some reason, the MGM agent did not fill out a seperate report for the Capitol.
