One of our staff, whose name appears on the Capitol Cinema donor wall, attended an event recently to celebrate the opening.
They tell me the Chicago Gothic inspired ceiling light show, illuminated by 4000 LEDs, was spectacular. Paul Gough spoke. The RMIT choir performed. They watched old film clips including a Hoyts training film from the 1940’s, munched on popcorn and choc tops, as well as champagne and canapés.
Sounds like a proud moment for this donor, pleased with their contribution, restoring “a grand old Melbourne lady to her former glory, with a 21st century glam makeover”.
