The Little Book of Wexford, by Nicky Rossiter, says that the Capitol Cinema opened on February 15, 1931. The building had previously been occupied by a furniture store. An article published in November, 2002, announcing that the premises of the Capitol Cinema were being renovated for a return to retail use noted that the theater had been closed for eighteen years, so it closed around 1984.
