Experience Duck Soup Cinema
There’s nothing quiet about this classic silent films series: laughter and clapping fill the historic Capitol Theater. Each movie is accompanied by a talented organist, who complements and reacts to everything on screen while playing the magnificent Grand Barton Organ. A variety of quick vaudeville-style acts get things cooking before the movie. Emcee Joe Thompson is your old school, bow-tied master of ceremonies, cracking jokes and keeping the fun moving along. Throw in celebrity appearances, gags, and some serious door prizes, and it all adds up to one of the best deals in town for family-friendly entertainment.
Screenings are preceded by door prize giveaways!
Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for kids 12 and under. All seats reserved. Note: 7 PM shows are sign language interpreted.
