Robert Altman Anniversary Double Feature at the Capitol Theatre

The Capitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th St., Cleveland) will present two classic films by director Robert Altman starting Friday, September 11th in honor of their anniversaries. Oscar-winner NASHVILLE will be back on the big screen for its 40th and POPEYE returns for its 35th. 


With a cast of 24 characters whose lives are intertwined through multiple storylines rather than a single plotline, NASHVILLE was unlike any other film when it was released in the summer of 1975. Set in an election year as a third party candidate is organizing musical talent for a rally, NASHVILLE's themes of celebrity culture and politics are as timely today as they were when the film was originally released. 


Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director and two Best Supporting Actress nods (Lily Tomlin and Ronee Blakley) the film won Best Original Song for Keith Carradine&rsquos "I&rsquom Easy." NASHVILLE is now ranked as one of the top 100 films of all time by the American Film Institute.


POPEYE stars the late Robin Williams as the spinach-powered sailor in this live-action family comedy based on the classic comic strip. The film co-stars the perfectly cast Shelley Duvall as Popeye&rsquos girlfriend Olive Oyl (a role she seems almost genetically designed to play). POPEYE was a complete departure for the maverick filmmaker, marking his only family film and his first attempt at truly broad comedy. The film was one of the biggest hits of 1980 and has developed a cult following over the years.
