Drive-in night double feature at the Capitol Theatre

Posted

ROME — After three years, the Capitol Theatre’s Drive-In Night Double Feature returns at 7 p.m. Friday, July 22.

The Capitol will offer two sci-fi classics reminiscent of the kinds of things you’d see at a good ol’ drive-in cinema. First up, “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” A UFO lands in Washington, D.C. Klaatu (Michael Rennie) has come on behalf of alien life, who have been watching the Cold War-era nuclear proliferation on Earth. But it is Klaatu’s silent robot, Gort, that presents a more immediate and ominous threat to Earthlings.

After intermission, find out what happens to the Gill-Man from the Black Lagoon after he is captured by men and made into an aquarium attraction in “Revenge of the Creature.”

Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children 12 and younger.

The Capitol Theater is located at 230 W. Dominick St.

(NOTE: The Drive-In Night takes place inside the Capitol Theare.)
