Step back in time when you visit the heritage listed Capri Theatre for your next trip to the cinema. Built in 1941 the Capri Theatre is kept running by the Theatre Organ Society of Australia's South Australian Division and is maintained by a fabulous group of dedicated volunteers.

Iconic Capri Theatre Lit Up at Nighttime


You can expect to catch some of the latest Hollywood films at the Capri but they also hold special viewings of older classics to be enjoyed in the spectacular surroundings. You might not be able to catch the latest in the 3D craze, but the plush theatre seats offer serious comfort.

A special treat for theatre-goers who visit the Capri on a Tuesday, Friday or Saturday evening, the Capri Theatre Wurlitzer Pipe Organ is brought out for some pre-show tunes. This is not something to be missed. Not only does the pipe organ take up most of the theatre stage, but watching it played is a spectacle in itself. When the organ starts disappearing into the stage you know your film is about to start.

The Main Auditorium


If you're a regular movie-goer and you want to help out a good cause, then you can join the Capri Theatre Movie Club. For $20 for a single annual membership you can then visit the Capri for only $7 a movie. The best bit is that the money goes towards the Organ Society and preserving the theatre. The Capri also feature special prices for groups and books of 10 Movie Dollar Savings Tickets at cheaper prices.

Visit the Capri for a unique movie experience that could help preserve a bit of history. For session times and all other information please visit the Capri website. If you are interested in volunteering at the Capri then call (08) 8272 1177 and ask to speak to Margaret.
