Having always been a fan of this wonderful theater, I make a special effort to attend some of their silent and early sound film showings----especially CAPITOLFEST every August. Rare archival films , some of them never shown since their original releases, are all shown in 35 mm on the "big" screen. Any silent movies have live accompaniment on the restored 1928 organ---with several talented organists taking turns. The films are well chosen both for their rarity, and entertainment value. And there is a nice mix of genres---comedies, romantic, dramas, pre-code, thrillers, etc. It is worth the trip from the Buffalo area to go to this, and at times, to attend their other special film showings. A lot of thought goes into all their programming--from movies to live plays-musicals, music concerts, etc. Admission prices are reasonable. The theater is run by knowledgeable, friendly , and enthusiastic folks. I would be there more if it were not for the distance.
