Make a sweet escape to the Capitol Theatre Ice Cream Parlor, tucked away next to the historic Capitol Theatre lobby. Revel in the nostalgia of movie memories as you treat your  tastebuds to our Hollywood themed dessert menu featuring Ghirardelli chocolate and locally roasted fresh espresso beans. Hit the sweet spot with scrumptious ice cream desserts, creamy malted milkshakes, delectable coffee beverages and more while listening to classic movie soundtracks.

Peruse our menu of fountain favorites, then slide into one of our decked out themed booths: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or Back to the Future. You'll be immersed in movie heaven as you explore floor to ceiling iconic movie props and memorabilia.

Our menu is full of showstoppers such as the Pirate's Treasure salted caramel sundae, the I'm Melting! Melting! lava fudge cake sundae, and the Goonies Truffle Shuffle - a chunky blizzard of rocky road ice cream, caramel swirl, Baby Ruth, and chocolate truffles. Chill out with a Frozen Hot Chocolate, candy poppin' Ectoplasm slush, or a sweet foamy Butter beer. Our Oscar Winning Espresso Drinks are a hit with fan favorites such as The Skywalker, Raider's Gold, Flux Capacitor, and the Emerald City. For the ultimate experience, try to conquerThe King Kong Sundae: the 8 scoop wonder of the world!

Plus there is always a fun selection of movie-themed merch, candy, and ice cold glass bottled drinks from our antique Coke machine.
