The Capitol Theater was opened May 30, 1928 as a neighorhood vaudeville and movie theatre the interior was beautifully finished with ornate plasterwork and stencilling. 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.
It was twinned on March 5, 1976 and was renamed Park I & II Theatre in August 1981. The Wurlitzer organ was removed and much of the plaster work covered. Closed on September 1, 1987 with “House II:The Second Story”, it has since been allow to suffer much decay and water damage. Efforts by locals to save the theatre were met with deaf ears by the town council and it was demolished in late-February/early March 2021.
