Capitol Halloween Double Feature
*Film: THE MUMMY (1932) &

Saturday, October 25, 7:00 pm

Brought to you by Voce & Iles, CPAs.

Famed cinematographer Karl Freund (Metropolis, Dracula) made his directorial debut with The Mummy, a tale of British archaeologists who uncover the ancient sarcophagus of a mummified Egyptian priest (Boris Karloff). Foolishly ignoring its warning not to open the box, the mummy takes the form of a modern Egyptian and quickly begins his quest to resurrect the soul of his love, which he believes has been reincarnated in a modern woman (Zita Johann).

Described by some critics as a sequel that bested its predecessor, The Bride of Frankenstein revives the famous monster, masterfully played by Boris Karloff.  Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) wants to get out of the evil experiment business, but when a mad scientist, Dr. Pretorius (Ernest Theisinger), kidnaps his wife, Dr. Frankenstein agrees to help him create a new creature, a woman, to be the companion of the monster.  Co-starring Elsa Lanchester, Valerie Hobson and Dwight Frye.  Directed by James Whale.

Adults $6, Capitol Friends $5, Children (12 & Under) $2

Catholic Diocese of Syracuse presents

Sunday, October 26, 1:00 pm & 6:00 pm

Mary of Nazareth is an epic new motion picture on the life of Mary, mother of Christ, from her childhood through the Resurrection of Jesus.

This full-length feature film was shot in Europe in very authentic locales with outstanding cinematography, a strong cast, and a majestic music score. Actress Alissa Jung gives a beautiful, compelling and inspired portrayal of Mary. Pope Benedict XVI had the opportunity to screen this film in the Apostolic Palace, and was touched by the portrayal of Mary so movingly revealed on film.

The film vividly captures the essence of Mary’s profound faith and trust in God amidst the great mysteries that she lived with as the Mother of the Messiah, her compassionate humanity and concern for others, and the deep love that she and Jesus shared for one another. This movie underscores her special role in God’s plan for our redemption, her unique relationship with Christ, and the tremendous suffering that she endured in union with his passion and death, as well as her serene joy at his Resurrection.

Directed by acclaimed European film director Giacomo Campiotti (BAKHITA, DOCTOR ZHIVAGO, ST. GIUSEPPE MOSCATI) and written by Francesco Arlanch (RESTLESS HEART, PIUS XII, POPE JOHN PAUL II), in addition to the luminous performance by Jung, the film provides inspiring portrayals of all the main roles, including Andreas Pietschmann as Jesus, Luca Marinelli as Joseph, Paz Vega as Mary Magdalene and Antonia Liskova as Herodias. The original music score was written by Guy Farley.
