The Capitol was Kitchener’s first large movie theater built expressly to show movies (and not other forms of entertainment).

Remodeled in 1967 and twinned in 1976, the theater closed in 1999 but reopened in 2001, as nightclub called Club Elements, much like the nearby Odeon.

Built by Famous Players in the late 20’s — this theatre was “pooled” with the Lyric Theatre a larger theatre in Kitchener to eliminate competition and increase the profits. This theatre was pooled with Premier Operating’s Mr. Herb Allen who had the right to book and date the films for both theatres!!
