There was another passionate “A Star is Born” couple before Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Check out the 1976 version of the film starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson at the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Aug. 11.
The 98-year-old 737-seat theater recently got a new name. Long known as the Capitol Theatre, it’s now the Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre in honor of the couple’s $2.5 million donation.
The theater, which features live performances, movies and speakers, was ranked the world’s 15th best venue with 800 or fewer seats by Pollstar magazine in 2018.
