Capitol Theatre was a cinema and concert venue located in Cardiff, Wales, which featured a 3,158-seat auditorium.

History

Capitol Theatre opened in 1921 with the British comedy film Nothing Else Matters. In 1964 the Rank Organisation purchased the theatre and used it to book many notable artists, such as Tom Jones, The Beatles, Queen, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan. The Beatles' last live U.K. tour concluded with two performances at the theatre on 12 December 1965. The Rank Organisation closed the theatre in 1978 and it was demolished in 1979. The Capitol Centre now occupies the site.
