HAPPENING TONIGHT: Capitol Theatre topic of talk

Posted

ROME — Rome Historical Society, 200 Church St., will host the program, “Capitol History,” with Rome Capitol Theatre’s Arthur and Kylie Pierce at 5:30 p.m. today, Wednesday, Nov. 16.

The historic Capitol Theatre was built in 1928 and today remains an active performing arts complex in the heart of Rome’s Arts District. From grand beginnings to its most recent restoration, the Capitol has entertained generations as a movie house and live performance venue.

This program will dive into how the Capitol came to be, the celebrities that have graced its stage, the venue’s decline, and its subsequent rebirth. Today the restored Capitol, with its brilliant marquee, is steeped in history and serves as an exemplary example of community revitalization.

The program is part of the Rome Historical Society’s third Wednesday programming.
