A Trip To The Moon with Jack and the Jukebox

A Trip To The Moon with Jack and the Jukebox

Get ready for an out of this world evening of entertainment!

The night starts with the Lunar Launch Party as we open The Rome Art Association's new "Lunar Exhibit" inside the Cinema Capitol lobby. This pre-movie reception will begin at 6:30. Villa Verona Vineyard will conduct a wine tasting, specialty coffee will be served along side hors d'oeuvres and more!

At 7:30 get ready for “A Trip To The Moon”, the 1902 silent film from the godfather of special effects, director Georges Méliès. Years ahead of its time, "A Trip to the Moon" film was an international success. Its unusual length (13 minutes), lavish production values, arresting special effects, and emphasis on storytelling were markedly influential on other film-makers and, ultimately, on the development of narrative film making as a whole.

Though “A Trip To The Moon” is of silent, it was not intended to be seen silently; exhibitors often used a bonimenteur, or narrator, to explain the story as it unfolded on the screen, accompanied by sound effects and live music. In a modern approach to the live sound effects and music, the group “Jack & The Jukebox” will accompany the film with their own original score live at Cinema Capitol.

Following the accompanied screening of “A Trip To The Moon,” a second feature, “Moonwalkers,” will be shown.

MOONWALKERS SYNOPSIS: After failing to locate the legendary Stanley Kubrick, an unstable CIA agent (Ron Perlman) must instead team up with a seedy rock band manager (Rupert Grint) to develop the biggest con of all time-staging the moon landing.

Please Note: Tickets for the "Lunar Launch Party" are limited with only 30 tickets available. The $20 ticket will include the wine tasting, specialty coffee, hors d'oeuvres and admission to the movies and performance.

If you would rather attend just the screenings of "A Trip to the Moon" and "Moonwalkers" tickets are available for $10.

Join us for a week-long run of the sure-to-be-cult-classic starring Nicholas Cage, "Mandy".

"Mandy" is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man (Nicholas Cage) hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life. It's a cocktail of Mad Max, a nightmare version of Jim Henson, and the darkest psychedelic films of the 1970s.

From time to time four old friends, all extraordinary actresses, meet up in the English countryside to gossip, to remember and to laugh. For once they let the cameras in…

TEA WITH THE DAMES is a unique celebration of the lives and careers of four of our most iconic actresses; Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith. All four have gone from being fledgling actresses in the 1950s to acting royalty. They’ve watched each other’s careers grow and bloom and have celebrated life’s ups and downs together. TEA WITH THE DAMES invites you to spend time with these acting legends as they talk about their lives and their professional experiences across theatre, television and film. Directed by Roger Michell (My Cousin Rachel, Notting Hill), the film also includes a range of astonishing archive material. Candid, funny, caustic, irreverent, poignant and utterly engrossing, this unmissable release is proof that there is truly nothing like a Dame.

Vincent Price stars in the horror-thriller THE TINGLER, as a coroner who discovers a parasitical creature that feeds on fear and grows on people's spines; the creature can only be subdued by screaming. Also in the cast is Judith Evelyn, Darryl Hickman, Philip Coolidge, and Patricia Cutts. Directed by "schlock artist" William Castle, the movie was originally shown in a process called "Percepto," which, during a scene in which the Tingler escapes in a movie theater, audiences experienced the tingler's presence. The Capitol Theatre screening will include the "Percepto" effect; those audience members who wish to avoid intensity of Percepto are urged to not sit in the center section of the Capitol Theatre orchestra seats! The feature will be preceded by short subject(s) tba.
