Show Flyer from the Capri Cinema

The Capri CinemaEdit

The Capri Cinema was an pornographic film (adult entertainment only) theater located on the corner of 8th St and Ellis Street in Downtown Augusta, Georgia.

In 1995, Didier Rubio (brother of Coco Rubio and Jayson Rubio), converted the theater into a live music venue. A large number of local bands, along with a few major label bands, made the Capri a success in the beginning; however, dwindled attendance forced the doors to be closed forever.

Harry Grimes and Robert Snelling (co-owners of Infernal Racket) soon took over the reigns during the Orwell Cafe days. Not sure why they ended up closing it again (please edit).

Later (year needed), Jay Sills reopened the Capri as a punk/hardcore venue. Though the Capri was also not as successful successful the third time around, the collapsing of the roof and structure forced its closing yet again, this time for good.

Now, the Capri has been completely renovated, and transformed into Le Chat Noir, but it no longer exclusively shows adult entertainment films.
