He has never claimed to be a photographer, but he says if he takes enough pictures a few should turn out. He reviews his photos with Photoshop, but will not spend more than 5 minutes “adjusting” any one of them. Richard has been volunteering at OFS since 2012.

What was once lost we can try to find.  The lost and found box is located on the second-floor Mezzanine Lounge.  Valuable items like keys, wallets, phones, and jewelry are locked up in the theater office, you can swing by when the Capitol Theater is open and ask the Lobby Supervisor to check for you.   It’s not your mama’s house, so please keep your feet off the furniture and take your compost and recycling to the lobby, we appreciate it immensely! Contact  Housekeeping and Maintenance for Lost and Found Items, maintenance issues, and general cleanliness!
