York PA – Feb 12, 2019 – The Appell Center invites you to the Capitol Theatre to enjoy our new, monthly Black Film Series – a series of films that celebrate the culture of the African-American and Black communities!

The film series kicks off with a very special double feature Friday night event – The Wiz at 6:30 PM, directly followed by Dreamgirls at 9:00 PM. After the initial double feature kick-off event, the series will continue to show one feature film each month including classics such as Do the Right Thing, Love and Basketball, Claudine, and a special First Friday Family Film screening of Akeelah and the Bee.
