Widely regarded as Douglas Fairbanks’ greatest performance, this epic swashbuckler employs groundbreaking special effects to tell the epic story of 1000 Arabian Nights. Fairbanks, who also wrote and produced the film, famously demanded only the best and paid meticulous attention to every detail, which lead to this film becoming one of the most expensive of the 1920s, at a cost of over one million dollars to produce.
The special screening of The Thief of Bagdad is a longer feature film, which may not be appropriate for children and will not include vaudeville acts or door prizes.
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.
