    The gorgeous Capri Theatre, a heritage listed building with 782 seats spread across floor and balcony levels, boasts the architecture and detail of Australia's cinema heydey with today's mod cons. 

    The old school: retro, art deco surroundings and the mighty Wulitzer organ. The impressive organ features pipework in glass-fronted chambers. You can hear it action in the 15 minutes before screenings on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

    The mod cons: the latest in digital projection and surround sound, plus deluxe loungers including a few double "love seats". The Capri's candy bar offers Bickford's traditional sodas, Golden North ice creams, and South Australian Haigh's chocolates.

    The Capri is staffed by volunteers and run by a not-for-profit, so the money made from every ticket goes toward the maintenance and continued restoration of the cinema.

    History

    Originally the Star Theatre, the cinema opened in October 1941. It's opening night screenings were MGM's Florian and Dr. Kildare Goes Home. The Greater Union cinema chain bought the cinema from its original owners, the Clifford Circuit, in 1947. There was one more short-lived name change, to the New Curzon in 1964, before finally Cinema Capri in 1967. In 1978 the theatre was bought by The Theatre Organ Society of Australia (South Australian Division). The Society installed the cinema's Wurlitzer organ (Australia's second largest) in 1983. In 1990, the cinema and building was placed on the South Australian State Heritage Register.
