Capitolfest 16

All Ages

Capitolfest is Central New York's premier summer Cinephile film festival—a place to see rarely-shown and newly-discovered films of the silent and early talkie era. Regarded by attendees from the U.S., Canada, and Europe as the movie lover’s dream vacation, the weekend festival starts late Friday morning and ends early on Sunday evening. Screenings are arranged by session, with each session essentially comprised of a double feature plus short subjects. Each session contains intermissions and there are generous breaks between sessions (allowing for meals) as well. The philosophy of Capitolfest is that there should be time to savor the films, thus our slogan, “A vacation, not a marathon.”

Included as part of Capitolfest's silent film line-up is live organ accompaniment for each film, played on our original installation, 3-manual, 10-rank Style 70 Möller Theatre Organ. Restoration work on the organ was started in 2002, and since then it has been used on a regular basis to accompany silent movies. Each of the silent films will be accompanied by some of the world’s foremost exponents of authentic silent movie accompaniment. Eminent musicians such as Avery Tunningley, Bernie Anderson, Dr. Phillip C. Carli, Robert Israel and Dennis James have performed for films on the Capitol's Moller in the past.

The goal of the Capitol Theatre's film series is to not only showcase vintage films, but to re-create the experience of seeing movies as when they were new. Many of the films at the Capitol are shown in 35 mm prints on the theatre’s carbon-arc, variable-speed projectors. Capitolfest prints are provided by such archives as the Library of Congress, the UCLA Film & Television Archive, Universal Pictures, the George Eastman House, Warner Bros. Pictures, and Sony Pictures, as well as rarer prints from private collections. The festival's line-up focuses on obscure films that received critical praise in their time, but are now near-impossible to see.

Bitter and confused after the death of her parents, she clashes with the other residents of the estate, including the surly housekeeper (Gladys Cooper), the giggling maid (Elsa Lanchester) and Craven's invalid son (Dean Stockwell). After discovering a key to a secret garden, Mary seeks the means to heal herself and the other inhabitants of the Craven household.

Join us for a special two-night installment of the Fri(ght)day Night Feature. In hopes of catalyzing attendance for horror films here at Cinema Capitol we will begin cherry picking the best and most talked about indie horror films and will present them in limited run/one-off screenings in supplement to our standard programming.

When you're dealing with demons, be careful what you wish for... In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Muñoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father-and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden)--by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known--and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter. Backcountry director Adam MacDonald builds hair-raising tension around what's both a complex mother-daughter tale and a frightening fable about our darkest desires.

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to...Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman's violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; "praying with the violin," says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick's enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent and self-deprecating, and here his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family and friends, and most endearingly his devoted wife of 50 years, Toby. Itzhak and Toby's lives are dedicated to their large, loving, Jewish family in NYC and their continual support of young musicians. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, ITZHAK is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love.

At our last Capitolfest, we paid homage to the now iconic actress Fay Wray. Now we continue Wray’s recognition, and it will truly be a blast from the past!

In this now classic 1933 picture often deemed one of the best horror flicks of all time, actress Ann (Fay Wray) and film director Carl (Robert Armstrong) travel to the Indian Ocean to do location shoots for a new picture. Along the way, the actress meets and falls for a rugged sailor (Bruce Cabot). Upon arriving at a mysterious island, Ann is taken hostage by natives who prepare her as a sacrifice to the enormous ape Kong who rules over their jungle. But when Ann is rescued and Kong is captured, the real trouble begins.

In honor of the 85th anniversary of our showing KING KONG for the first time in May 1933, we will not only present the movie, but a recreation of the entire experience! Enjoy the same shorts which we played alongside KING KONG in 1933, and see the feature presented on our giant 20x40ft. screen.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin

Rfor language throughout, violence and some sexual references

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.
