140 East Second Street

Architect: John Eberson 1927-1928

Originally designed by John Eberson, known for his “atmospheric” interiors, the Capitol’s theme was a Roman garden, complete with a sky-blue ceiling with twinkling stars at night. Facades of palaces, castles, and hanging gardens adorn the theater’s interior. The exterior is comprised of buff-colored brick set off by terra cotta piers, and copperclad storefronts. Restoration work has brought the theater back to life inside and out.
