The Capitol Theatre is listed as being open in 1950. 810 N Central is located right at the intersection of Central and Broadway, which would have been a major crossroads of Knoxville at the time.

The Capitol opened in 1946 and closed in 1950. It was a small theatre with only 350 seats. For a long time it was Turner Furniture Store. I think there is some sort of a furniture store in this building currently.
