According to this website, this theatre opened as the Auditorium de Québec with a beaux-arts interior; the original architect was Walter S. Painter. It was remodeled in 1927 by architect H. Laberge when the theatre’s name was changed to the Capitol by Famous Players. Another makeover occurred in 1935 under the direction of Raoul Chenevert; it was apparently that year when it became a full time cinema.

The Capitol Theatre is now part of a complex known as Le Capitole de Quebec. It includes the theatre, a cabaret, hotel and restaurant. The former Cinema de Paris, next door, is now known as Le Cabaret du Capitole. It has been altered and seats 565 patrons. Their web site has a few small pictures and information: .
