Built in 1920, the Capitol Cinema barely made it to its 50th anniversary.  It had 2530 seats and had been designed by the theatre-architect Thomas W. Lamb.

In 1924, the cinema was renamed "Keith's Vaudeville" after being bought by American Keith theatre circuit.

The last movie presented was M.A.S.H on May first 1970.

The then and now photos are on opposite sides of the street. The Capitol Square building now stands on the Capitol Theatre site, with the CIBC located where the theatre's entrance was. I know, I saw The Odd Couple there five times in 1968-69.
