1 person favorited this theater
Designed by Architects Poole and Mouritzen, the Capitol Theatre opened on 4th May 1929. The theatre was not too successful as a cinema due to its size in a city with a small population and it had limited space backstage for operation as a live theatre.
Tom Wardle bought the Capitol Theatre in 1966 for use as a live theatre but sold it in 1968 after being offered a price above what he had purchased it for.
The Capitol Theatre was demolished and replaced by an office building. The chandelier from the theatre now hangs in the Princess Theatre in Melbourne.
