This theater opened as the Loew’s Theatre in 1917, designed by Thomas W. Lamb, and was taken over by Famous Players from 1930 to 1946.
Odeon took control of the theater in 1946 and renovated and renamed it the Capitol Theatre.
The 2,259-seat theater, the largest in Hamilton when it opened, was sadly closed in 1971 and mostly demolished on January 10, 1973, with the former lobby space still standing today.
Renovations stir up
It is widely known in the paranormal world that new and constant renovations are a key reason why ghosts "haunt". These changes seem to stir up the spirits and the building is as acitve NOW as it has ever been!
The man in Brown
The Capitol Theatre has a long-standing legend associated with it, steeping back through many, many decades, back to when it was first contructed and operated as it's original inception, a movie theatre.
Legend states that an angry manager fought, killed and walled-up the lifeless body of his wife, on site in his office on the second floor in the back of the building.
Rumour states that her spirit, wearing in a long brown dress, still lingers and roams through the walls of what is left of this historical treasure right in our Downtown core!
Rumour also says that her spirit only appears from the waist up, perhaps because only the front facade/portion of the building is all that's left of this famous theatre... a building that once provided a bustling community of eager Hamiltonians the right amount of entertainment in an era it needed it the most!
From the interested and curious first-time explorer, to hard-core paranormal investigators, now is your change to get...
up close and personal with...
the ghosts of The Capitol Theatre!
