Donuts and a Movie


Germany | 2017 | Robert Schwentke

THE CAPTAIN film still

This chilling wartime parable is set in the final days of WWII. A young deserter from the German army, on the run from his compatriots, finds the abandoned uniform of a Nazi captain. Donning the clothes and assuming the officer’s identity, this hunted fugitive suddenly acquires the status of ruthless executioner. This “remarkable film” (Variety) is handsomely composed and stylishly shot in crisp b&w scope. “[Presents] Naziism as a communicable disease that smothers conscience, paralyzes resistance and extinguishes all shreds of humanity.” –NY Times. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 118 min.

Free donut and cider to the first ticket buyers, while supply lasts. Special event pricing $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
