Capitol Cinema

The Capitol Cinema was opened as a single screen cinema in 1929. Designed in a Streamline Moderne style (way in advance of its time) by architects F. Widmer & Hans Weiss, it had a seating capacity of 975, with 530 in the orchestra level and 415 in the balcony. Each side of balcony was extended to the proscenium along the side-walls and another 30 seats were in these areas. It was equipped with a Welte organ.

The Capitol Cinema now operates as a twin screen cinema with seating provided for 443 in the former stalls & circle seating area, and 117 in the former rear stalls seating area.
