|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until Sep 13, 2020

The Paramount Theatre is announcing today the return of the annual Classic Film Series presented by Capital Metro for the 45th year beginning Friday, September 11, 2020. After closing for six months, the Paramount will be opening the doors with strong health and safety initiatives for guests and staff, and for now it will operate at only 25% capacity, leaving plenty of room for social distancing in the historic movie palace. Film tickets will go on sale Tuesday, September 8 and can be purchased online at www.austintheatre.org/film.

While the series promises to play classic hits from Spike Lee to Hitchcock, Film Programmer Stephen Jannise has curated a number of timely choices in this delayed season. Things kick off with a “Power to Choose” theme in this election year with showings of “Casablanca” on September 11 and 12, followed by “Cabaret” and “Do the Right Thing” on September 13.
