Drink it in at Capitol Theater

You already know the Capitol Theater has the best movie popcorn in Olympia (and if you didn't, the Volcano told you so in the Best of Olympia issue).

But what are you going to wash that down with?

The Olympia Film Society has a new answer beginning Saturday, March 12, when screenings of Blue Valentine and Slammin' Salmon will offer a mezzanine beer and wine garden, as many of the society's special events long have.

"There'll be certain Saturdays or Fridays where we'll have beer and wine gardens for films," says Helen Thornton, the society's film programmer. "We are just starting that."

In other words, if you really want to watch the film in a slightly altered state, check the society's website before you head for the theater.

Saturday, March 19, the expanded beverage selections - only for those of legal age, natch - will be available during screenings of Nenette and Made in Dagenham.

OFS also raised ticket prices recently. Films are now $8.50, $5.50 for society members, $4 for kids, and matinees are $5.50, $4.50 for members. Plus extra, of course, for the beverages, popcorn and other accoutrements. The society also allows you to bring your own snacks or even dinner to the films - which means snack prices are much more reasonable and you won't have to bring a big purse or smuggle things in a la Kramer -  who wins cafe lattes for life after burning himself while sneaking one into a movie theater in his pants .
