CAPA Summer Movie Series: There’s an app for that

June 25th, 2010 by CAPASMM

By Joe Cortez, Web & Social Media Coordinator

Everywhere we look, we’re bombarded by mobile applications. There’s an app to listen to music, find restaurants, connect to our networks, play board games…the list goes on and on. This is something that we have paid attention to – after all, the more advanced mobile devices get, the more we expect from them. In that spirit, CAPA has developed its first mobile application for iPhone and Android-based phone users—the 2010 Summer Movie Series app, presented by PNC.

From this app, you can check out what movies are coming to the Ohio Theatre, call the CAPA ticket office to purchase movie ticket strips, and get directions to the Ohio Theatre. You can also connect to us on Facebook and Twitter from your mobile device (if you haven’t already done so).

The CAPA Summer Movie Series mobile app is a step towards the continued fusion of arts and technology. It allows us to better serve our audiences (you) by providing information and convenience no matter where you are.

Take some time to check out the new CAPA Summer Movie Series mobile app by visiting http://www.capasummermovies.com/ with your iPhone or Android-based phone. Add it to your home screen so you can have it with you no matter where you go!

Welcome to the new CAPA web site!

March 10th, 2010 by CAPASMM

Welcome to our new web site and blog! The updates make it easier for you to find news and information about the shows you want to see in Columbus’ downtown theatres.

We worked with the team at dynamIT to make the site incredibly user friendly. Everything you need to know about our shows, theatres, and history is clearly labeled and easy to find. We’ve created several key features so you can easily integrate our shows and performances into your life, including…

•   All of our shows are now searchable by type, producing company, and day. If you’re looking for a specific performance, simply go to the event calendar, type in the show and day you’re looking for, and you’ll find it quickly!

•  Want to buy tickets in a hurry? Go to the event calendar, find the event you want, and click on the “Buy Tickets” button—getting you in and out in a hurry, and back to your busy life already in progress!

Stay tuned for more new features to come. We will soon be including behind-the-scenes video, interviews, and more!  We want to hear your thoughts and ideas, so please leave us a comment.

Meet the Bloggers:

Rolanda Copley, CAPA Publicist

Rolanda works hard to make sure you know about all the CAPA presentations. Be it concerts, theatre, dance, comedy, or Broadway, you’ll normally find her writing press releases, setting up interviews for local reporters, or taking actors, musicians, and dancers about town for appearances. In other words, she’s tired! But she loves dressing to impress for Broadway opening nights. Fashionista CAPA style!

Rich Corsi, Director of Programming

Rich is CAPA’s homegrown Cinderella story—he’s worked his way up the ladder over the years, starting in the Ticket Office and becoming the booking powerhouse that he is today. You know that really awesome show you saw here a while back? Rich was involved in making that happen. Wonder how the films for the Summer Movie Series are chosen? Rich is in charge of that, too.

Elena Perantoni-Fehr, Venue Sales and Production Assistant

Interested in renting one of CAPA’s magnificent theatres? Elena’s the one you want to talk to! You call, you email…she can book you into a space, be it for a performance, special event, or even your wedding. While her hectic job is to keep CAPA’s buildings full of activity, she does have other passions — like her love of theatre and her secret goal of one day guest starring on a show with Muppets and Tina Fey at the same time.

We look forward to interacting with you on the new blog! Have a question, comment, or is there something you’d like to see on the new website? Leave us a comment and let us know!
