"FORCE MAJEURE"


Thursday, November 20-Sunday, November 23
OUR GRAND OPENING!

It is with great pride that we announce the GRAND OPENING of an exciting new space, soon to part of the eventual Capitol Complex—CINEMA CAPITOL.  Offering exclusively independent films, foreign cinema, art films, film festivals and more, CINEMA CAPITOL is just the start of many more exciting things coming to the Capitol Theatre!


A critical favorite at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, Force Majeure is a wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama that tells the story of a model Swedish family—handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two children—on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

“THE MOST ACUTELY OBSERVED COMEDY OF THE YEAR, IF NOT IN SEVERAL YEARS. A breathless black diamond course of social stress and embarrassment.”
—Richard Lawson,
Vanity Fair

“FORCE MAJEURE IS A JOLT. YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT HIT YOU. Director Ostlund shifts gears from humor to psychological thriller with cunning skill.”
—Peter Travers,
Rolling Stone

“A BRILLIANT, VICIOUSLY AMUSING TAKEDOWN OF BOURGEOIS COMPLACENCY.”
—Stephen Holden,
NY Times

Woody Allen's
"MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT"

Thursday, November 27-Sunday, November 30

Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.

"A master stroke of enchantment from one of the few legitimate cinematic geniuses of the modern cinema, with a nimble and tender performance of enormous elegance and charm by Colin Firth that is heart-meltingly romantic." —Rex Reed, New York Observer

"Melancholy and doubt may seem like gloomy qualities to blend into an amorous romp. But that shot of gravity is what makes Magic in the Moonlight memorable and distinctively Woody Allen." —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"LOVE IS STRANGE"

Thursday, December 4-Sunday, December 7

Ben and George take advantage of New York's new marriage laws and tie the knot after being together for 39 years. Unfortunately, the Catholic school where George teaches does not approve and they reluctantly fire him, forcing the couple to split up and stay with friends while they sell their apartment and look for cheaper housing. George crashes with two gay police officers, while Ben, who's a painter, bunks with his nephew's family in Brooklyn—a temporary situation that weighs heavily on all involved.  Starring John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, and Marisa Tomei

"You need to give Love Is Strange your eyes and ears and attention, let it work its effects on you gradually, like the lovely Chopin piano music that forms the spine of its soundtrack." —Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

"Calling Love Is Strange a great gay love story is both precise and inaccurate; I doubt I’ll see a more finely performed and beautifully crafted love story, with or without any mere modifiers, up on the big screen this year." —
James Rocchi, The Playlist

"23 BLAST"

Thursday, December 11-Sunday, December 14

“If you only see one film between now and the end of the year, go see 23 BLAST.” Mike Huckabee

“Perfect film to watch with your team. Inspiring, funny and because its based off a true story it’s extra special.” —Joe Galat, President, American Youth Football
