Previous Names: Princess Theatre
Mrs. Emma C. Farrington became Brattleboro’s first female movie theatre operator when she launched the Princess Theatre on September 16, 1912 in the Miner Building in Brattleboro. The Princess Theatre mixed films and live vaudeville. Farrington would acquire the Auditorium Theatre, as well.
The Princess Theatre may have been known best for its colorful and well-designed programs of features. The Princess Theatre shared its namesake with the neighboring Princess Hotel. The theatre would change the most after fire on February 15, 1929 which all but destroyed the hotel and theatre. It was rebuilt and reopened as the Capitol Theatre on October 11, 1933. On March 15, 1937, a blaze totally finished off both buildings.
In the 21st Century, a dry cleaner was housed where the Princess/Capitol Theatre once stood.
