Here’s the Schedule for the Capitol Theatre’s Third Annual Pride Month Film Series


The Capitol Theatre has just announced that its third annual Pride Month Film Series will begin on Tuesday with a screening of the newly restored flick Before Stonewall. The film documents the infamous raid that took place on the Stonewall Inn, a bar in New York’s Greenwich Village, igniting the gay liberation movement. Opening night includes a reception with happy hour drink specials and desserts from locally based Bitchy Vegan Homo.

The series continues on June 11 with a screening of Good Kisser, an indie drama about a weekend fling that turns into a messy love triangle and on June 18 with a showing of Changing the Game, a documentary about three high school athletes. That screening will include a post-film discussion hosted by Christine Howey, Executive Director of Literary Cleveland and author/performer of Exact Change.

The series concludes on June 27 with Can’t Stop the Music, a camp classic about an aspiring songwriter who seeks help from “colorful characters from his neighborhood” to launch his career.

The screenings take place at 7:30 p.m., and admission is $9.75 for adults, $7 for seniors/children, $8.75 for students. Tickets are available at the theater box office or online at

A portion of all concession sales from the Pride Film Series will go to the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland.
