The Capitan Theater was opened in December 1949 by Isley Theatres. Located in the Pasadena district of Houston, it has a tower feature on the left of the facade, with a nautical mural on the face of the facade. Internal murals on the auditorium side-walls were by Nat Smythe. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels.
The Capitan Theater was closed in 1969. Plans for renovations were announced in 2003, but to-date, have come to nothing. The exterior is beautiful, especially with the neon lit up.
It holds many wonderful memories for us Boomers…and before!
