The Capitol Theatre was located at 204 N. Washington Avenue and was managed by Butterfield Theatres of Detroit. In 1955, the building was owned by the Claude Cody estate. The manager at that time was Harry Hayden, who moved on to manage the Esquire Theatre at 122 E. Michigan Avenue. The Capitol Theatre had a second run policy or as we term it today, a cheap seat theatre.
The second run policy was now in place at the Esquire Theatre which had been closed for several months but was reopened with the closing of the Capitol Theatre and the Southtown Theatres. All three theaters were managed by the Butterfield Theatre Group. The Capitol Theatre operated between 1912-1955 and its former names were the Empress Theatre and the Theatorium.
