The Capitol Centre

The property upon which the Capitol was built was purchased in 1927 by Louis Rosenbaum, a Sturgeon Falls businessman. He began building the structure and, when he ran out of funds, he sold it to Famous Players Canadian Corporation. They opened the Capitol Theatre on June 1st, 1929. The Capitol had 1455 seats and was referred to as “a palace of splendor” with it’s elaborate Spanish lights and décor. The movie that was shown to the sold out grand opening crowd was, In Old Arizona. It was the first all-talking Fox feature movie, a western starring Edmund Lowe, Warren Baxter and Dorothy Burgess.

  • Colin James - Miles To Go Tour 2018

    until 9:30 PM @ Capitol Centre

    His new album Miles to Go, in which James records nine new covers of his favourite artists (Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Little Willie John, Robert Johnson, etc.) and adds two originals, “I Will Remain” and “40 Light Years.” “Blues has always been a pass-it-forward kind of thing,” says James. “It’s also surprisingly hard to write. You have to be careful how modern you get in your phrasing. Certain writers can write a song that sounds like it was done 40 years ago, but it’s deceptively hard.” To be a blues musician is to always have a dialogue with the past.  As with much blues music, it’s the performances on the original versions rather than the actual song that drew James to them.

    So much of Colin James’s career has pointed him to this moment: joyfully tangled up in the blues, which, as he notes, “is the only genre where you can maintain a young profile at the age of 53.”
