A CapFilm trip is a perfect extension to the English Language Arts curriculum, providing a different lens to classic stories. After the film, stick around for a discussion facilitated by an Appell Center teaching artist. Our films are from National Theatre Live, which brings the best of British theatre to the cinema screen filmed live from some exciting stages across the pond.

A CapFilm trip costs between $4-$5 per student, with chaperones and adults free!

Limited bus subsidies are available should the cost of transportation be a barrier for attendance.
