    So interesting to see how the Capitol has two layers of history. There’s the movie palace era–and fewer and fewer people are left who remember that. Then there’s the era of its first rock palace incarnation, and there are plenty of people who remember that. Now, it seems poised for its third era, and let’s hope that it flies, commercially. The Capitol’s history reminds me of how, as these theatres get older and older, their remembered “living” history will become more and more about their lives after the movie palace era. I sometimes get into conversations with people in the Bay Area (who are perhaps 40 or younger) about places such as the Warfield, and, while they have many memories about rock shows there, they are amazed that it was once mainly a movie theatre. They previously assume it was built for plays or concerts years ago.
