The Capitol Theatre was Kitchener’s first large movie theatre built expressly to show movies (and not other forms of entertainment). It opened prior to June 1926.

Remodeled in 1967 and twinned in 1976, the theatre 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!!

The theater was in operation by June 1926. My grandmother performed a vaudeville show there against the silent film “Beverly of Graustart” June 21-23, 1926.
