"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

Thursday, 7:30 pm; Friday, 7:30 pm;
