2011 - Capitol Theater lit at night for yearly October Latin Jazz Festival

The Capitol Theatre was opened February 14, 1928 with William Boyd in “Two Arabian Knights”. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell. It was closed April 30, 1966.

There was talk in recent years about it reopening, but in 2015, it sits boarded up.

I don’t believe the theatre ever opened. There is no webpage that I can find anywhere- the link above for the BSPA’s restoration page no longer exists. At the Brownsville Society for the Performing Arts page ( they make no mention of the Capitol – instead they are focusing on renovating another historic building as their new academy. The Google Street View (2014) shows the building still boarded up.
