|The old Capitol building at Stamford Road. Taken in January 2013.|
Now, back to Capitol. The place smelled of stale cigarettes. The black marble floor (if memory served me well) are littered with cigarette butts. Guys in bell-bottoms hang around with the girls... smoking... chatting... sometimes they just sat on the floor before the plush velvet curtains drew apart to let in the audience for the next show.
Inside, if you are bored with the movie, you look upwards and see a beautiful dome decorated with zodiac signs. And if the movie is sad, you could always divert your attention to the winged horse sculptures at both ends of the screen.
