Capitol Cinema, gone

The Capitol Cinema in Cork closed it’s door to audiences yesterday. Ryan has photos from last night too.
According to what he read in the Examiner, the building will now be used for apartments and retail purposes. I can’t complain, this particular cinema has been in a bad state of repair for a long time although it had ye olde style theatres. I remember seeing Gattaca in screen 3 several years ago and it was in a tiny room with vertical patterned wallpaper.
The main theatre was much larger but other cinemas around Cork attracted the audiences.
