BRIGHAM CITY - A large chunk of plaster fell from the ceiling of the Capitol Theater Saturday evening, slightly injuring a Brigham City housewife and forcing the manager to close the theater pending a safety inspection.

Eva Chappell, 129 S. 200 East, said Sunday, "My first thought was that the whole thing was coming down."  Mrs. Chappell was taken to the Brigham City Community Hospital where she was treated for cuts and bruises and released.  Her husband, Terry, was uninjured.

Ken Dickamore, Brigham City Fire Marshal, said the chunk of plaster measured two feet by three feet.   Theater Manager Reed Walker voluntarily posted a closed sign on the marquee and told inspecting officials the building at 53 S. Main Street will be inspected for any structural problems.
