February and March Events at Olympia Film Society

By Noah Shachar

Kicking 2019 off with live music, cult-classic cinema, and a black-tie gala, Olympia Film Society, is lighting up downtown Olympia’s Capitol Theater in style.

Starting in February with“Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” on Feb. 3, OFS continues the screenings into Feb. 10 and 22, said OFS Marketing Director Jonah Barrett. Thusly, viewers have multiple chances spread over the month to catch the classic film. The Reverend Horton Heat’s bringing their blend of psychedelic folk rock to the Capitol Theater on Feb. 9. Their original sound and compositions make an unforgettable atmosphere well worth the price of an admission ticket. Next, in preparation for the prestigious award ceremony, OFS plans to show the live-action and animated Academy Awards-nominated short films for this year from Feb. 8 to 13. Later in February patrons are welcome back to the Capitol Theater for an Oscar party during which everyone is encouraged to dress in their best red-carpet threads in celebration of the awards. Although the specifics of the party are still, “Up in the air,” according to Barrett, he added, “It’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re very excited to have everyone over for the Academy Awards.” Folks should keep an eye on the OFS website for future details regarding the Oscar celebration. On Feb. 19 the synthpop band Cold Cave comes to the historic downtown theater with a sound Barrett described as, “Robert Smith if Tim Burton had adopted him at age 14.” In March, OFS screens the Jackie Chan flick “Police Story” on Mar. 2, 3, and 9.

With 2019 just beginning, there’s a lot of room available to make the year a memorable one, and OFS adding its own rich spread of memory making festivities certainly sweetens the mix.
