Built as B.F. Keith's Capitol Theatre sometime before 1924. Apparently a very early example of a twin cinema, sharing an entrance with the 1,794-seat B.F. Keith's State Theatre. Presumably the State was demolished in the space pictured as a parking lot below. The lobby was also apparently demolished or reskinned to create the space for the pharmacy shown below. Not sure what is inside the theatre space as none of the surrounding stores seem to have any public passages into it.

It's really hard to talk about morality and war in the same sentence. Where was the morality in the bombing of Coventry, or the bombing of Dresden, or the Bataan Death March, or the Rape of Nanking, or the bombing of Pearl Harbor? I believe that when you're in a war, a nation must have the courage to do what it must to win the war with a minimum loss of lives. (Theodore Van Kirk, Navigator on the Enola Gay)
