CAPA Summer Movie Series

The CAPA Summer Movie Series begins its 49thseason at the historic Ohio Theatre on Friday, June 15. The longest-running classic film series in America offers something for everyone. Some Like It Hot opens the series, and you don't want to miss it. Buy one ticket for five bucks or purchase a strip of 10 tickets for more savings. And, we have a strip of ten tickets to give away. So, check out what’s in store.

Sure, you come to see the great line up of movies. And, if you come early, you get to take in the “Mighty Morton.” Clark Wilson celebrates his 27thanniversary of the official organist for the CAPA Summer Movie Series, and he's worth the admission. First, nab some movie munchies. Next, settle into your seat and enjoy the pre-show. Remember, arrive 30 minutes before the movie to hear Clark tickle the keys of the the Ohio Theatre’s “Might Morton” theatre organ.
