Capitol Theatre

One will not miss the Capitol Theatre that once held screenings of popular movies. Sited at the junction of Stamford Road and North Bridge Road, the theatre was once owned by the Shaw Brothers. The older folks will remember this theatre and especially the Magnolia Snack Bar. Here’s some photos for you to reminisce the good old days you had of this place.
