(Friday, Saturday & Sunday)

Capitolfest 12 promises to surpass its eleven previous installments, with three days of eclectic and critically-acclaimed programming. Each year chooses a “tribute star,” and several of their films are showcased throughout the weekend. Capitolfest 12’s star will be William Powell, debonair leading man in talkies, and suave villain of the silent era.

Capitolfest is Central New York’s premier summer Cinephile film festival—a place to see rarely-shown and newly-discovered films of the silent and early talkie era, held at the historic 1,788-seat movie palace, the Capitol Theatre, in Rome, New York, which opened in December, 1928 as a movie house. Set in the small upstate New York city of Rome (population c.33,000) and regarded by attendees from the U.S., Canada, and Europe as the movie lover’s dream vacation, the weekend festival starts late Friday morning and ends early on Sunday evening.”
