SILENT FILM: Laurel & Hardy Laugh-a-thon
2018 Summer Movie Series
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy first teamed up in the 1920s, starring in 32 silent comedy shorts on their journey to becoming one of American cinema’s most beloved comedy duos. Featured organist Clark Wilson and the Ohio Theatre’s original “Mighty Morton” theatre organ make a “most beloved duo” of their own, performing live to five Laurel and Hardy silent short favorites — “Two Tars” (1928), "Putting Pants on Phillip" (1927), "Leave ‘Em Laughing" (1928), "Habeas Corpus" (1928), and "That’s My Wife" (1929).
The CAPA Summer Movie Series is the longest-running classic film series in America. Covering classic films and cult favorites for eight weeks this summer, our 49th year features 27 film titles including 12 series premieres, a silent film with live musical accompaniment, two Saturday mornings of classic cartoons, and the return of Fright Nite Friday hosted by Fritz the Nite Owl.
All tickets are general admission and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Movies are subject to change without notice.
