The theater received approval Monday from the Board of Selectmen.
Despite strong, and vocal, objections from a few neighboring residents, on Monday, the Board of Selectmen granted the Capitol Theatre the right to serve beer and wine. “Thank you for your patience and your excellent business,” board chairman Kevin Greeley told the movie theater’s owner, Richard Fraiman, “and I hope this helps your business.” The board approved Fraiman’s application, which was made possible by a town-wide vote in April, in a 4-1 vote. Selectman Diane Mahon voted against the motion because she said too many teenagers and kids go to the theater for it to serve alcohol. “I don’t see the need,” she said. Fraiman also owns the Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, which does serve alcohol. He said there have been no incidents at …

"Twilight: Breaking Dawn" starts Friday, 4:45 p.m., at Arlington's Capitol Theatre.
Hold on, spidermonkeys. It's time for yet another movie about our favorite diamond-skinned vampire, his oh-so-fragile human girlfriend and their totes adorbs romance. This Thursday night, teenaged girls (and their moms) will swoon, dudes will roll their eyes and those who know nothing about the Twilight saga — and don't care to — will avoid the movie theater like the plague. "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1" starts Friday, which really means Thursday at midnight. Twi-hards will likely start waiting in line hours before. Here in Arlington, Capitol Theatre will begin showing the movie at 4:45 p.m. on Friday. A box office employee said there have been plenty of pre-sales for the opening afternoon but seats are not yet sold out. Friday ticket …

Historical Arlington looks through the books of the oldest theatre in town.
The Capitol Theatre, 204 Massachusetts Ave., is Arlington's eldest cinema. The theatre first opened its door all the way back in November of 1925. Movies back then were at the height of the silent film era, just a few years before “talkies” began to take over. Popular films that could have been up at the Capitol during this time include: Battleship Potemkin, Chaplin's The Gold Rush and The Phantom of the Opera. The theatre was built by the Locatelli family, who were also responsible for the Ball Square Theatre and Central Theatre, both in Somerville. Originally, the cinema housed some 1,600 movie-goers for one showing. The theatre came built with a wonderful stage and dressing rooms for the occasional vaudeville act that would perform …
