MACON, GA — The Capitol Theatre re-opened to the general public on January 18, 2006 after being closed for 31 years. Thanks to the efforts of countless volunteers, the facility will now operate as a movie house and live entertainment facility.

Friday and Saturday nights are dedicated to movies showing at 7 PM and 10 PM. Thursday nights shall feature live entertainment. Future plans call for the complete restoration of the stage with lighting and sound equipment in place to support both live music and live productions.

As a 501©3, the facility will be available free of charge to school and educational productions on Monday and Tuesday evenings. In March the marquee will again be lit thanks to the generosity of Cox Communications. The marquee is a reproduction of the 1916 original.

Wonderful news! Couldn’t help noticing the very common mis-spelling of the theatre “marquee”

Any pics of the theatre and history to submit to Cinema Treasures?
