Lost Highway

Cinema Capitol

R-for bizarre violent and sexual content, and for strong langauge.

Lost Highway, David Lynch’s seventh feature film, travels down a twisting road of perverse menace as a jazz saxophonist (Bill Pullman) and his wife (Patricia Arquette) begin receiving disturbing VHS tapes—leading to jealousy, murder, and a startling mid-act transformation that radically recontextualizes everything that came before it.

Steven Spielberg “FIRSTS” Film Series

One of Spielberg’s black comedies rarely seen on the big screen. To boot, it’s got an awesome, all-star cast! After Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, residents of California descend into a wild panic, afraid that they might be the next target. Among them are Wild Bill Kelso (John Belushi), a crazed National Guard pilot; Sgt. Frank Tree (Dan Aykroyd), a patriotic, straight-laced tank crew commander; Ward Douglas (Ned Beatty), a civilian willing to help with the American war effort at any cost; and Maj. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell (Robert Stack), who tries his hardest to maintain sanity amid the chaos.

Prices: Adults $5, Children 12 and under $3 TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON

Footlight Parade (1933, 102 min.)

Capitol Theatre

As this year’s Capitolfest kick-off movie, we’ve selected the pre-code classic, Footlight Parade! It’s got everything you could want: stars James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell, music by Harry Warren, and musical numbers directed by Busby Berkeley! Motion pictures may have put Broadway director Chester Kent (Cagney) out of a job, but he quickly finds a second career producing musical sequences for the movies. Unfortunately, a cutthroat competitor keeps stealing his ideas. That cannot happen on his next commission, a rush job for a big-time theater chain. If his work impresses, it’ll lead to an exclusive contract. Chester has only three days, but with the help of his smitten secretary, Nan (Blondell), he just might pull it off. 

Prices: Adults $5, Capitolfest registrants $3 TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON

August 12, 13 & 14

Capitolfest

Capitol Theatre

This year’s Capitolfest features a tribute to sometime star and frequent supporting actor, Robert Armstrong (1890-1973), showcasing him in several movies from the silent and talkie era. Hero, villain, nice guy or cad, Robert Armstrong was a fixture in Hollywood A and B features (as well as television) in five different decades.
 
Capitolfest differs from other classic movie festivals in its leisurely pacing. There are intermissions within each session
(featuring live organ music)
and relatively lengthy breaks between sessions, allowing attendees to savor the films. (Thus our slogan: “A vacation—not a marathon.”)

Tickets, schedule and more information.
