I stand corrected. The “other” Miller Theatre was on Saratoga Ave between Bergen St & St. Marks Ave. in the middle of the block. By the time that I moved down the street in 1969 it was a supermarket. I was also confused because while everyone refers to the theatre a block & ½ away on Dean & Saratoga Ave. as the Capitol Theatre, I distinctly remember seeing the name “Miller Capitol Theatre” engraved on the facade above the entrance on Dean St. & Saratoga Ave. It was by then a store, but I distinctly remember seeing that name & I’ve always known it to be as such.

The facade on the other Miller Theatre used to read “The Miller Capitol Theatre” & was located on Saratoga & ran the entire block from Dean to Pacific Streets. It housed a little store by the time that I moved down the block from it in Oct. 1969. after the owner of the store, Miss Fannie died in the early 70s, the building was taken over by the Afro Carting Company. As I think of it, the building survived into the late 90s, perhaps even the early 2000’s, before it was eventually razed. Today, pre-fab 2 family homes are on that site. I’ll post a link to some pictures as it stands today, as well as when the homes were being built around 2006 or so.

The theater is now a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah Witness.

Maybe they had a dyslexic projectionist.

The Miller was one of two small neighborhood theaters I attended when a child. My only memory is quite a strange one. When attending the first show, and entering as soon as they opened, occasionally the film was started in the middle. I don’t know if this was an error, or if it was done on purpose so that the end of the last show of the day would be at a particular time. Anyone else experience this, either here or elsewhere?

Yes, the 1926 edition of Film Daily Yearbook lists the two Miller Theater’s;this one on Sutter Avenue and another located on 351 Saratoga Avenue with a 600 seat capacity. This has gone from the 1927 and future editions.
