Opened in December 1914 as the Toy Theatre. Later renamed Copley Theatre. It became a movie theatre named the Capri Theater and was ’re-opened' in the 1960’s. Ran “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “La Dolce Vita” and a revival of “Modern Times”.
One peculiar thing was its staircase, which was donated by Isabella Stewart Gardner. The stairs had been used at the opening of Fenway Court, ripped out of there when the tapestry room was created around WW I, and installed in the theater.
Some of G.B. Shaw’s plays had their American premiere there. Next door was a lounge named ‘the Stage’.
Torn down for the exit ramps of the Mass Turnpike in 1962, when the ill-fated Capri name was moved to the Strand on Huntington Avenue.
