Cinema Capitol will present the biographical drama THE CHAPERONE each day from Friday, June 14-Thursday, June 20.
THE CHAPERONE was based upon Laura Moriarty’s 2012 novel by the same name. The movie was directed by Michael Engler and written by Julian Fellowes, who worked as creator, writer, and producer of the television series DOWNTON ABBEY.
Louise Brooks was a silver screen sensation who epitomized the restless, reckless spirit of the Jazz Age. But she began her career as a 15-year-old student in Kansas for whom fame and fortune were only dreams. When the opportunity arises to study dance in New York City, her mother (Victoria Hill) insists there be a chaperone. Norma (Elizabeth McGovern), a local society matron who never broke a rule in her life, impulsively volunteers to accompany Louise (Haley Lu Richardson) on this great adventure. The movie also stars Miranda Otto, Blythe Danner, Campbell Scott, Géza Röhrig, and Matt McGrath.
THE CHAPERONE runs 108 minutes and is not rated. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for students, children, and military, and $6 for Capitol Friends.
