It opened as the NEW CINEMA on 23 August 1913; by January 1922 had been renamed CINEMA HOUSE, which closed for alterations 3 July 1926 and reopened on 2 August 1926 as the TIVOLI THEATRE. Management changed early in 1932 and the cinema closed for further alterations and to upgrade the sound from Cinephone to Western Electric. It reopened on 2 May 1932, which is probably when the name changed to CAPITOL. In 1950 NEW CAPITOL was a trading name. The last show was on 3 April 1955.
