Capitol Cinema: Lights, Camera, Action
Capitol Cinema Begins Showing Movies Nightly
Although the weather outside may be cold and frightful, movies are so delightful. Cheesiness aside, Capitol Cinema will be showing a movie every night starting this winter. Movies will be shown 364 days a year; that’s every day but Christmas Eve. They will be showing a little something for everyone. There will be classics, Oscar winners and soon to be award winners (fingers crossed). So, if you’re an enthusiast of independent films, or maybe just want to see something new, Capitol Cinema may be the perfect change of pace for you. Previous showings include award winning films such as Birdman, The Book Thief and Big Eyes, just to name a few. These films typically fly under the radar at big name movie theaters, so now is the perfect opportunity to see what you might have missed out on otherwise.
The films will be shown in the new digital theatre space, just finished in August. Complete with LED lighting, an all new digital audio system, a brand new screen tailor-made for the theatre and stadium style seating, the black box-style theatre space will ensure moviegoers the most comfortable experience possible. Each movie plays for one week; new movies are begin every Friday at 7:00 p.m. Only a few trailers are shown before the movie, but we recommend getting there a few minutes early to grab some treats from the concessions area. Make it a date, or grab some friends and head down to the Capitol this winter. // — Hannah Loefke and Becca Simon
