Classic Film Series

 

The 45th Annual Paramount Classic Film Series presented by CapMetro returns Friday, September 11th with everything from Spike Lee to Hitchcock, plus we’re partnering with Turner Classic Movies to celebrate women filmmakers throughout movie history! After six months of being apart, we can’t wait to welcome you back to see classics the way they were meant to be seen…on the big screen!

Austin’s beloved tradition has been updated to keep everyone healthy and safe. Masks are required for all patrons over the age of 10 unless you’re eating or drinking in your seat. We have also established specific procedures to minimize personal contact including a new Clear Bag policy, a new socially distanced seat map with our historic movie palace limited to only 25% capacity, touchless ticketing, touchless concessions and touchless temperature checks for all patrons and staff. There will also be staggered arrival times to help maintain a socially distanced environment, a healthcare professional onsite for every film, full sanitation and fogging before every film, and more.

MORE ON HEALTH & SAFETY

If you’re not quite ready to return to the theatre, we encourage you to follow along at home or revisit Film Programmer Stephen Jannise’s curated Summer Classic Film Series at Home series.
