Several times a year, we reclaim the silent-film heritage of the Capitol Theater. Local acts open for the screening of a classic silent film. Each show features a skilled organist on the magnificent Grand Barton Organ, just as it was done in 1928.
When a publicity stunt goes wrong … Harold Lloyd is at his best! With a script by the great Hal Roach and Sam Taylor, this 1923 romp is sure to have you laughing from the toes up.
Organist: Jelani Eddington
Duck Soup Cinema Celebrates 30 Years
For 30 years now, we’ve revived and celebrated the legacy of Capitol Theater, originally built for silent film. Our two series, Sounds of Silents (1986-1998) and Duck Soup Cinema (1999-Present), have engaged more than 90,000 patrons in silent film experiences. We are nationally known for providing an authentic silent film experience complete with music on the 1928 Grand Barton Organ—one of the last organs of its kind—plus vaudeville entertainment with a wonderful Master of Ceremonies, door prizes, and a classic feature film accompanied on the organ or by other live musicians. Please join us for our special 30th Anniversary Season of silent films.
