HELD OVER THRU DECEMBER 8
3:OO MATINEES SATURDAY & SUNDAY
Mildred and Richard Loving weren’t the first mixed-race couple in the United States, but they were the first to go to the US Supreme Court to defend their marriage and the marriages of other interracial couples.
Their nine-year battle to overturn the Virginia Racial Intergrity Act of 1924, resulted in them being sentenced to a year in prison, suspended if they left the State. Referred to the ACLU by then Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the Loving case ultimately resulted in a unanimous Supreme Court decision, which overturned the 1883 Pace v. Alabama precedent (a long way to go for the Alabama connection).
Infuriating and inspiring, Loving is the true story of justice achieved.
Friday, December 9 @ 7:30
Tickets $10 ($8 for Capri Members)
The Capri Theatre is getting into the spirit of giving. We've partnered with the Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless (MACH) to host the Capri's first-ever Sockball fight - I.e., a snowball fight, but with socks.
To participate, the rules are simple: Bring clean, unused socks to It's a Wonderful Life on December 9 at 7:30. After the pre-show talk is finished and a year-long Capri membership is raffled off, participants will ball up the socks and try to protect their drinks as best they can. We'll do a countdown, and then everybody goes to town. It might be the closest thing to a snowball fight we get all year! After a couple minutes (this is our first sockball fight, so we'll play it by ear), volunteers will come by to collect the sockballs. All socks will be donated to MACH.
Everyone who brings socks gets a limited-edition Capri cup. You can refill it with soda all night long, but only for this show. Cups are available while supplies last- so one cup per person, please. Don't get all Pottersville on us.
Want to donate more than socks? Feel free. MACH is currently hosting its annual Blanket Drive, collecting blankets, coats, and other warm items, and they'll see to it that anything else you donate goes where it can do the most good.
