I performed in this theater in 1987 while on a concert tour. (When I unearth those pictures, I will attempt to post the links here.) At the time of my appearance, Johann Maasbach, a well known evangelist in Holland, had his ministry headquarters there, but I do not know if he owned the building or was a renter.

Capitol was one of the third class cinema’s in the Hague were most of it’s visitors lived in the neighbourhood. Television was not common in the fifties and the early sixties. Most visitors were regular customers. The cinema showed mostly B- and C movies. A movies were shown after they had played in other theaters before.
