Built in 1925, The Capitol Theatre saw the end of the silent film era and the beginning of talkies in quick succession. The sister to the Somerville Theatre is also family owned and was lovingly restored to keep both the original Art Deco features and bring audio and visual standards up to high tech scratch. The Capitol has six auditoriums showing art house and first run films, and is very popular with local families at weekends. Mondays at noon, the cinema has baby-friendly movie time to allow parents and caregivers to view without any stigma should a baby cry and such. The theatre is adjacent to The Capitol Creamery, a standalone ice cream parlor serving locally made Richardson's ice cream—you can take your cone into the theater, too.
