Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.
Opened on June 5, 1935, as part of the Dubinsky circuit, the Capitol was located right across the street from the Missouri Capitol building. It joined the Durwood chain in 1948 and closed on May 15, 1970. It was later converted rather hastily into a one-level parking garage; the sidelights and balcony were left intact and the seats were simply replaced by asphalt! Tattered bits of the red stage curtain remained hanging above the exit for the next 35 years, and storage shelves set high on the walls were made from old placards advertising golden-age movie-house events such as "Bank Night."
