Capitol Theatre  William Street, Perth, WA 1930 - MAGNIFICENCE LOST

The Daily News (Perth, WA) Fri 12 Dec 1930 Page 8 CAPITOL THEATRE BEAUTY

CAPITOL THEATRE BEAUTY After an extended closure the Capitol is again about to reveal its majestic, beauty to Perth theatre-goers. The time is therefore not inopportune, to detail some of the many arresting features of this artistic example of theatre construction and design, for the Capitol theatre is undoubtedly one of the most, modern and beautiful theatres in the Commonwealth. Majestic and spectacular, but not repulsively spectacular, artistic without being overdone, roomy, airy and combining many features which are novel in the architecture of Perth’s theatres. Such as the impressions gained from an inspection of the Capitol. Majestic it is massive, too, but never overpowering. Its tones are subdued, it is patterned strikingly, but not obtrusively, it is bright but not gaudy, and paramount in its construction is the effort to provide comfortable appointments among comfortable surroundings - Contributed by Greg Lynch -
