Capitol Theatre in Singapore

The building was completed in 1933 and served as a movie theater until 1988. During the Japanese occupation of World War II, the building continued to show movies, but under the name Kyo-Ei Gekijo, but in 1944, a bomb planted by the resistance damaged the building and the Japanese forbade further screenings of English language films.

The building appears to be redeveloped today as a luxury mixed-use property.
