We received more than 100 nominations for the first ever CAPA Summer Movie Series Fan Favorite, and now it’s time for you to cast your vote from the top five nominated films! In alphabetical order, the nominees for the CAPA Summer Movie Series Fan Favorite Film are:
CASABLANCA (1942) – Starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid.
“Casablanca is without a doubt one of the best films ever made, if not the greatest. I feel a chance to show it on the big screen in such a eloquent theater such as the Ohio Theater would be a grand experience.”
“Casablanca is a memorable classic! Need more be said?”
-John (not the same as above)
FUNNY GIRL (1968) – Starring Barbra Streisand, Omar Sharif, and Kay Medford.
“Two words: Barbra Streisand!”
“Barbra Streisand’s debut role as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl is still one of her most moving performances. Streisand is strong, coy, funny (of course), and infinitely musical.”
GONE WITH THE WIND (1939) – Starring Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, and Thomas Mitchell
“I would love to see this fantastic film in all its glory as those would’ve seen it when it came out. The grandeur of The Ohio Theatre rivals that of the classic film.”
“I read this book when I was 12 years old and loved it. I then saw the movie later. My children have not done either one and I would love for them to see this movie. I know that for them to watch this is needs to be in the venue of the Ohio Theater.”
THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965) – Starring Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, and Eleanor Parker
“A beautiful and timeless movie…Beautiful story and music as well as a gorgeous setting…Classics are classic and we would love to see this one.”
“ is the 45 anniversary of this movie and I think that it would be a great family film able to entertain people of many ages!”
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962) – Starring Gregory Peck, John Megna and Frank Overton
“To Kill a Mockingbird is such a classic film and one of Gregory Peck’s finest films. It’s such a slice of American history that it would be a perfect fit into the Summer Movie Series.”
“The movie is larger than life, should be viewed on the big screen! Great acting [and] a story that is as appropriate today as when it was made.”
