CAPA Summer Movie Series

The CAPA Summer Movie Series is back! Our 52nd series of classic films and cult favorites will run July 22-August 29 at the Ohio Theatre, and feature 21 films over six weeks.


CAPA Summer Movie Series ticket strips, one of central Ohio's best entertainment bargains, can be purchased now through Friday, August 13. Strips of 10 tickets are $35, a savings of $2.50 per ticket off day-of-show prices. Phone orders for strip tickets can be placed by calling (614) 469-0939. Strip tickets are good for any film in any combination - present your tickets to an usher at the Ohio Theatre for admittance to any film on the Series throughout the summer.

Day-of-show tickets to individual films are $6 and go on sale one hour prior to show time at the Ohio Theatre kiosk. Senior citizen tickets are $5. Kiosk sales are cash only.

Re-Opening Safety Protocols

Face coverings at CAPA venues are optional unless otherwise enacted by a health order or by law. We continue to employ enhanced, deep-cleaning procedures and increased fresh air intake through the HVAC system. Hand sanitizer stations are available in the lobbies and outside of restrooms. Those exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms or who may have been exposed to someone presenting symptoms in the 14 days prior to an event are asked not to attend.

Listen Everywhere App

Listen Everywhere, an assistive listening, mobile app, is now available to Ohio Theatre patrons. Bring your own headphones or ear buds, download the free app, and stream live, high-quality audio directly to your cell phone that can be adjusted to your personal volume preference.

How do I connect?

  1. Find "Listen Everywhere" in your app store or scan the QR code in the Ohio Theatre lobby and download the free app to your cell phone.
  2. When you open the app once you are at the Ohio Theatre, select "Listen – Ohio Theatre" as your wi-fi channel.
  3. Plug in your headphones or ear buds to your phone, and all the audio from the film plus any live announcements from the stage will be streamed directly to your device. Adjust volume settings to what is comfortable for you and enjoy!

New for 2021!

Patrons will enjoy the newly upgraded loge, mezzanine, and balcony of the Ohio Theatre following the recent completion of a three-month, $900,000 renovation. The aisle stairs in the loge have been reconstructed and handrails added to increase patron comfort and safety. The cross aisle between the loge and mezzanine has also been leveled to eliminate its pitch toward the stage. New aisle handrails have also been added to the mezzanine and balcony. Railings at the front and rear of each section have been upgraded and replaced and new carpet has been laid in all three sections.

Also new for 2021 is Listen Everywhere, an assistive listening app that patrons can download to their personal cell phones. When coupled with the patron’s headphones or ear buds, the app provides high-quality audio streamed directly to the patron and can be adjusted for volume preference.

Show Tunes

Now celebrating his 30th year as featured organist for the CAPA Summer Movie Series, Clark Wilson will again provide pre-show entertainment at the keys of the Ohio Theatre’s treasured “Mighty Morton” theatre organ 30 minutes prior to each screening.

Select films will be audio-described for visually impaired persons at no extra charge. Audio description allows patrons to hear a scene-by-scene narration of the on-screen action while they listen to the movie dialogue. Audio-described movie screenings for the 2021 series:
