Located on the once fashionable Boulevardul Regina Elisabeta. The Cinema Clasic opened on 26th May 1912. At the rear of the cinema on Strada Constantin Mille is an open-air cinema named Teatrul de vara Alhambra which opened in May 1916. This open air cinema has a magnificent Baroque style facade and an equally splendid Baroque style proscenium and was designed by architect Nicolae Nenciulescu.
The Cinema Clasic was remodeled in an Art Deco style in 1938 and was re-named Cinema Capitol. The open-air cinema was re-named Teatrul de vara Capitol, but retained its Baroque style of architecture. In 1947 the Cinema Capitol was taken over by the Communist government and was renamed I.C Frimu Cinema. In 1977 it went back to its Cinema Capitol name.
It had closed by Summer of 2002 and stood empty and unused. The open-air cinema was in use in the summer of 2008, but has since closed and is in a derelict state, as is the indoor Cinema Capitol. The foyer of the Cinema Capitol went into retail use as an Outlet clothing store. In August 2018 it is in use as a restaurant.
