Prior to being revamped into the Capitol, this operated as a cinema under the name of Hancock (with original Opera House dropped). See ad in photo section.

Louis Novy was a partner of Interstate Theaters in the Paramount Theatre in Austin!

Very old theater. Played 2nd run movies in Austin after the Paramount and State. Owner in the 30s, 40s,50s was Interstate Theaters. In the 1940s the city manager for Interstate was Louis Novy.
