Monochrome mania

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