Opened in 1923, and designed by architect Frank W. Stevenson as the Bush Egyptian Theatre. It was also known as the Fox Egyptian Theatre.
In 1954, the theatre was given an extensive ‘modern’ remodel to the plans of architect Frank Gruys of Faxton & Gruys, Architcts, and was renamed the Capri Theatre. This removed all trace of the original Egyptian style decorations, both externally and internally.
Later renamed the Park Theatre, after over seven decades, the Park Theatre, last operated by the Landmark Theatres chain, finally closed in 1997 and rapidly fell into decay.
In September 2003, the Park Theatre was torn down and a condominium constructed on the site, retaining part of the theatres' facade.
