The Capri Theatre was padlocked by the authorities in 1971 following an obscenity charge. Any earlier history as a legitimate theatre is unknown.

A 1987 view of the Capri Theater in Texarkana.

Internet says that the Capri Theatre was at 818 East Street, Texarkana, Arkansas, 91854. This location is in a strip mall a mile or so south of downtown. The building has been remodeled, but I’m pretty sure it’s the same one seen in Don Lewis’s photo. I can’t tell from the Google street view what’s in there now, but it might be either retail or offices.

Given it’s location in a fairly modern building, it’s possible that the Capri was never anything but one of those “adult” cinemas that cropped up in storefronts around the country in the late 1960s and early 1970s. I also suspect that the seating capacity of 1,122 seats we give is quite exaggerated. In the satellite view the building just isn’t that big.
