Picturing the Past 136: Love Bug at the CapriPosted Tuesday, November 22, 2011, at 3:47 PM
The Capri Theater in 1969, looking much the same 42 years ago as it does now. (T-G file photo)
The theater looks almost the same today. This was about, I think, a year or two after the name change from the Princess. (Anyone remember the exact year?)
Remember when they had children's matinees every Saturday?
Depot Street was a little busier then. Note Fred's Dollar Store, which later became just Fred's on Madison Street, and Lewis & Clifford Furniture, one of the line of several ownerships of that store over the years.
