Gentlemen, I hate to tell you this, but on Cosmo’s 03-27-11 post I entered Capitol Theatre’s exact address of “310 w main, oklahoma city” and came up with historic photos of when this was the Dreamland Theatre, and after its convertion to a Virginia Dare Shop.

From dougdawg comes this vintage shot of the Capitol Theatre. Later on a much taller blade sign replaced the one shown here, along with an eye catching marquee.
