Information for this tour was contributed by Klaus Weber.
The Capitol was built in 1954 by Gerhard Wolf in the rising village of Limburgerhof. First film shown was German after-war classic "Dr. Sauerbruch". Almost 50 years, later Mr. Wolf is still director of his movie house and has plans about future . This is remarkable because in the 1960s when theatres in the surounding villages closed, he also thought about giving up. But first supermarket-chains showed no interrest and later he didn't want to rent his house. Today the Capitol shows mainstream movies during the weekend and arthouse films during the week. The number of seats was reduced from originaly 500 to 200. Otherwise, the Capitol has a wonderful 1950s charisma. It is the last single-screen theatre of this size in Palatina.
