Capitol Cinema is one of the Mumbai's oldest theatres. Located just opposite Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, it was built by Kunvarji Paghtivala.[1] It is a Heritage grade II Victorian structure constructed in 1879. Originally a theatre for performing arts known as Tivoli it got its present name in 1928 when it was converted to a Movie theater.[2]
