Capitol Theatre screening ‘70s film classics on Saturdays

The history of movies at the Capitol Theatre stretches back to the silent film era, but its new film series is drawing from another classic Hollywood era, the 1970s.

The historic theater announced this week that it will screen six weeks of 1970s double features on Saturdays in August and September, aimed at fans of horror, comedy and adventure.

The Capitol’s ‘70s Movie Series will feature ‘70s-themed concessions and prizes. The Capitol’s full bar will be open during the movies also.

All of the screenings start at 7 p.m., with a 20-minute intermission between movies.

Tickets are $7 at the box office or from rutheckerdhall.com.

Here’s the full lineup:

Aug. 2: “Earthquake” and “Jaws”

Aug. 16: “Young Frankenstein” and “Blazing Saddles”

Aug. 23: “Burnt Offerings” and “The Exorcist”

Aug. 30: “Poseidon Adventure” and “Towering Inferno”
