I have enjoyed the Capri for many years and I am very sad that I can no longer attend films there. The board of directors has demonstrated that they will censor anything they choose when it suits them.... Horrible people. I don't even want to waste another key stroke on those horrid, frightened, tight-assed beasts, who can't stand up to a Garrett. Maybe the memory of what happened to Albert Patterson is still too fresh in their memory. Everyone in Montgomery knows what I'm talking about. I just feel sorry for Martin. See More

This theatre doesn't believe in free speech, It believes in protectionism of the elite class. Save your money. As Atticus said "“There's a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep 'e...m all away from you. That's never possible.” See More

So how does 1 board member have the power to tell others what they can and can't do based on that 1 persons view,So that 1 person is undermining freedom of speech and someone else's view of the circum...stances they went through because it doesn't agree with!But it's ok for all the Christian board members to show a movie with 4 nuns being hookers!Hypocrites!

Dear Friend,

The third showing of Atticus V. The Architect hit a snafu. When the board of the Capri Theater in Montgomery realized that the film was about one of their Board of Directors, they reimbu...rsed the rental money for the theater, and refused to let the film run at the Capri Theater.

You see, the documentary proves that federal prosecutors, including former Alabama U.S. Attorney, Leura Canary, who is on the board of the Capri theater, committed multiple improper acts in their relentless persecution of Don Siegelman.

Theater Director Martin McCaffrey claims the film portrays Canary "in a false and defamatory manner.” Read more in the Montgomery Advertiser June 27 article Capri Cancels Showing of Don Siegelman Film.
"legally vetted and substantiated"

The director of the film – Steve Wimberly – claimed that the board’s refusal to run the film was "hiding the truth." He wrote in his defense "Every single word, picture, interview and frame of this movie has been legally vetted and substantiated by multiple sources. . . . Both Democrats and Republicans were complicit in the corruption. Likewise, members of both parties continue to actively protest this deliberate injustice."

Best little theatre in Alabama. I drive from Auburn just to catch the movies they air. Love y'all and everything you do!

The Capri was going to show the documentary Atticus Finch, about governor Don Siegelman from Alabama. But the theater and its Director Martin McCaffrey has canceled the film; claiming former Alabam...a U.S. Attorney, Leura Canary, who is on the board of the Capri theater, is portrayed "in a false and defamatory manner.” Every word in the film has been legally vetted by multiple sources. So Why is the public being censored and banned from making our own decisions about the content of the film? Do The right thing and show the film. See More

I have been watching movies at the Capri since the age of 11. I am 64 now. I used to walk to get there as a child. The fact that it still remains is wonderful! The recent update of the interior is b...eautiful! My husband and I both love to watch movies that are not always mainstream. We like more thought provoking movies and off the wall type stuff. You can see this and more at the Capri! See More

I have asked the makers of the abillionlives to contact the Capri theater as I'm extremely interested in seeing their documentary and believe others might wish to see it as well The Capri is a pretty... amazing little place. I volunteered as an usher here when I was a teenager on Saturday mornings with a friend and love the fact it's still here. See More

Shame on the Capri Theater! They canceled Atticus V. the Architect because they can't handle the truth! The documentary proves that a board member, Alabama U.S. Attorney, Leura Canary, along with oth...er federal prosecutors, committed multiple improper acts in their relentless persecution of Don Siegelman. Boycott. See More

Failure to support a film that talks about one if he biggest travesties of justice in this country is your shame ! You owe it to the people to show this film!

The kids went to a Birthday Day party here. Great venue and a treat for the kids.

Kudos to Capri theatre for cancelling the showing of a political propaganda film. Not the place for community theatre.

At least one person on the current Board has kept a film from being shown. People that don't appreciate censorship should run for the Board.

Amazing theatre! Incredible selection of indie films! I fully support and will continue to visit the Capri! A total gem in Montgomery!

The theater stands against truth to protect one of its less than moral board members.

The Capri Theatre is a historically important theatre in Montgomery, Alabama in the heart of the historic Cloverdale Historic District. It features art house cinema, is a modern facility filled with h...igh-tech options for multi-media, music offerings and lectures and the Capri Film Society is a thriving, vital part of the cultural Capital of the South. Some of the greatest films in the history of mankind have successfully debuted, and been shown as silver-screen epics worthy of repeat performance. It is a TOUR DE FORCE of the cinematic, music, and art scene of the high, erudite, and learned style and haute couture, educational and dazzling opulance is it's calling card! Word of mouth makes this the centerpiece of our cosmopolitan area. Local creations and experimental films, and time pieces such as historic dramas and period costume thrillers keep you on the edge of your seat, and coming back for more! Top wines and beers are served and neighboring 5 star restaurants are beckoning artistic eclectic educated intellectuals for over 40 years plus and the area is antebellum architecture tucked away in a manicured setting that is "Big Fish" in a little pond friendly for children, elders and a destination for world travelers they will find is keeping with peace and tranquility, yet stimulating to the mind. Please note it's famous attendees and join them in loving the theatre in a truly American powerhouse of art. See More

I have reluctantly, for now downgraded my review of the Capri from 5 stars to one. The Capri has been a shining light to our community, but the Board's recent decision to renege on a commitment to sho...w ”Atticus vs. the Architect" has turned it into a burned-out bulb. May new light soon shine.

Show the film.

Before 1994, Tonya Harding was famous for being the first American woman to complete a triple axel during a competition. After 1994, she became famous for the attack on fellow Olympic hopeful Nancy Kerrigan. I, Tonya delves into the events before and after the attack, showing the events and people that motivated it and the devastating consequences.

Dramatic enough for Oscar noms, funny enough to satisfy even the iciest of humorless hearts, I, Tonya is a powerhouse of acting and 90's kitsch.

And by an odd coincidence, we're showing it during the Winter Olympics. Which means there's no escape from the Winter Olympics, and you might as well spend them at the Capri.

It's the summer of 1983, and precocious 17-year-old Elio Perlman is spending the days with his family at their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. He soon meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who's working as an intern for Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.

Script by James Ivory of Merchant-Ivory (A Room With ...A View), Call Me By Your Name aims to make your heart swell with romance. And hey, if it fails, at least you can feel the warmth of the Italian countryside rather than a Montgomery February.

And yes, this one is getting Oscar buzz, too. See it now so you can gloat about it at the Oscars - and see it at the Capri so you can get that hot indie, community-supporting cred.
