Information for this tour was contributed by Matt Lutthans.

The building on the corner is the Capitol Theatre; the big brown building next door is the Capri. For many years, the two were combined into one large complex, the "Capri V." Now they are clearly visible as separate buildings since the facade has been removed.

According to a woman at the local Fraternal Order of Eagles, the building was sold to somebody who was going to restore the theatres, but instead stripped out all the copper and other valuables, then disappeared.
