This is not the Broadway capital theater. Broadway capital is the Detroit opera house now. This theater must have been demolished years ago.

Changed name to the Broadway Capitol in the 1950's and maintained a solid venue of Sci-Fi Horror Movies through the 60's. They even had a Premier showing of the TINGLER, where some of the seats were rigged with motors to create a vibrating sensation.

I believe it was also known as the "Broadway Capitol" ; I used to go to downtown Detroit to see the "B" movies" i.e. Trantula and the bug horror movies in this theatre.

Silent-era house that closed up at the onset of the Great Depression.
