Capitol Theatre presents select screenings with Spanish subtitles

The Capitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th St., Cleveland) will begin presenting limited screenings of Hollywood blockbusters with Spanish subtitles including GHOSTBUSTERS.


GHOSTBUSTERS (opening July 15th) will play with its original English language audio for all screenings but select showings will feature Spanish subtitles. The dates and times for GHOSTBUSTERS  that will screen with Spanish subtitles are 1:00 PM on Saturday, July 16th and 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 29th. 

"The Capitol Theatre is proud to serve the community with a diverse line-up of films," says Jonathan Forman, president of Cleveland Cinemas. "With a large Spanish-speaking community on Cleveland's west side, we felt it was important to offer the option of seeing films with Spanish subtitles when available. This is common practice in larger metropolitan areas but the Capitol Theatre will be the first to offer this service in Cleveland."

This July the CAPITOL SELECTS will showcase four classic films by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Each film is celebrating a milestone anniversary this year as it returns to the big screen.


SUSPICION (75th Anniversary) (July 1st – 7th) – Cary Grant and Best Actress Oscar-winner Joan Fontaine star in this classic thriller about a wife who becomes increasingly concerned that her husband may be a killer.

FAMILY PLOT (40th Anniversary) (July 23rd – 28th) Hitchcock’s final film is also one of his most lighthearted. A wealthy old woman hires a con man (Bruce Dern) and a phony psychic (Barbara Harris) to find her long-lost nephew in this comedic thriller.

The next film in the series will be Orson Welles’ classic thriller, TOUCH OF EVIL, on Monday, September 19th. 


Patrons will dine on a three course Tex-Mex inspired meal at Fire Food and Drink starting at 6:00 PM 


Note: a vegan dinner option will be available with advance request


Following dinner, TOUCH OF EVIL will be screened at 7:30 PM at Shaker Square Cinemas. Patrons who attend the dinner will receive VIP seating at the showing.
