The Capitol Theatre was built in 1920 as a neighorhood vaudeville and movie theatre the interior was beautifully finished with ornate plasterwork and stenciling. A large indirectly light oval covers three quarters of the auditorium ceiling. The proscenium is decorated with plaster ropes flowers and twists. Two pipe chambers complete with false boxes are located on either side of the stage. At one time the theatre boasted a 2/8 Wurlitzer pipe organ.
Twinned in 1976, the organ was removed and much of the plaster work covered. Closed in 1986, it has since been allow to suffer much decay and water damage.
