460 would be closer. The jewelry store next to the old theater is listed as 464 Aultman. The Street View shows a Fantasy Fast Photo in the old theater building, but phone listing a Fantasy location, but on 11th St.

This is the Capital Theater. The correct address is 466 Aultman St. Currently, Legacy Realty is renting the lobby space.

I worked at this theater as a teen in the late 50’s and early 60’s. It was a great old theater then. The management insisted that theater be spelled theatre on all forms and reports. I would love to get into the back and see it again. There is so much behind what is used that is very interesting.
