Capitolfest is Central New York’s 35mm classic film festival, screening rarely-seen silent and early talking movies from around the turn-of-the-20th Century into the late 1930s. Most of the movies are shown via 35mm films from archives such as the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman Museum, and UCLA Film & Television Archive, as well as prints from studios such as Universal, Warner Brothers, Sony, and Disney. 2023 marks the 20th anniversary of Capitolfest, as well as the 20th festival (there was no show in 2021 due to Covid).

On the morning of Tuesday, January 24, at the Cinema Capitol 95th Oscar Nominations announcements watch party, early morning risers made their predictions on who would be nominated. The person who would pick more correct names than the house expert AJ Parker would win a pass to all 2023 Oscar movies at Cinema Capitol. We have a winner. In true Oscar tradition, to find out who won, you’ll have to watch!

In the Heat of the Night
(Mirisch/United Artists, 1967; color; 110 minutes) This is the third film in our film series. John Ball’s groundbreaking novel, translated to the screen, chronicles the explosive case of a black police inspector (Sidney Poitier) from Philadelphia who, while traveling in the deep south, becomes a suspect in a brutal murder simply because of the color of his skin. After he is assigned to assist in the case he butts heads with the bigoted police chief (Rod Steiger) and the locals who resent a black man in a position of authority. “A film that has the look and sound of actuality and the pounding pulse of truth.” –New York Times
