This lovely theater was located in Newark, NY and many folks from Wayne County, NY will no doubt remember it. The Capitol Theater was opened December 31, 1925. By 1941, it was operated by the Schine Circuit. It was a “neighborhood theater” in that it ran films after they completed their runs in Rochester or Syracuse.
In later years, it showed adult films in addition to major titles to stay afloat. Shortly before it was to be restored by the state, the Capitol Theater burned to the ground during a showing of “Footloose” on June 15, 1984.
