Capitol Theater - Real Windham Haunted Place
The Capitol Theater was established in 1926 and stayed operating until 1973, then standing empty for about 30 years until it was renovated in 2002. The story that most believe is the reason why the theater is haunted, is about the 1930s actress that was accidentally shot in the balcony. Her lover was the shooter and was aiming for his rival, her other lover. Another story told here is that a live performance of a sword-fight went awry and one of the actors was accidentally stabbed to death. Although no record of these events has been found, folks say the deaths resulted in the theater’s hauntings: Witnesses have seen apparitions in the balcony and dressing rooms and heard unexplained voices and footsteps as well as the sound of a baby crying.
