MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Capri Theatre confirmed Tuesday afternoon that technical difficulties have forced it to cancel all movie showings “until further notice.”

The issue involves some equipment failure, the theatre said. On Wednesday, it provided an update saying the issue will mean closure for the weekend of March 26-29 and most likely through the following weekend of April 2-4.

Management said it’s rescheduling ‘EOS: Easter In Art’ to the next available dates and that Oscar Shorts will be rescheduled, if necessary, to the next available weekend.

The Capri, located on East Fairview Avenue in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood, is an independent movie theater built in the 1940s and originally called ‘The Clover’.

It was most recently in the news just weeks ago to announce a capital campaign to pay for a new marquee that more closely matches the one originally on the building.

Those needing a refund for purchases already made should contact the theater.
