Capitol Theatre – Then and Now

In its early days, the theatre at 10065 Jasper Avenue had seating for more than 1,000 patrons, and was managed by a gentleman named Max Allen. It also had a small stage for live performances and the entrance resided between a pipe shop, Smoke Shops Ltd., on the left at 10063 and jeweller H.B. Kline & Sons on the right at 10069. Both businesses operated at the location for the next 54 years. [source]
