According to the Kalamazoo Gazette, the theatre opened in 1907 as an early venture of W. S. Butterfield. Then known as the Majestic, the structure cost $45,000 and was built to seat 1240.

In 1923 fire swept the theatre, then known as Majestic Gardens. In 1924 the theatre reopened as the Capitol.

Theatre closed in the fall of 1976.

“The building was demolished to make way for a parking garage.” Shame!
