Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will introduce a new series, “Take Out Tuesday,” featuring the movie “Rubber,” on Tuesday, Dec. 5. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie will begin at 7:35 p.m.

The “Take Out Tuesday” series is an initiative to support locally-owned businesses. Through the series, cinema-goers will be invited to bring takeout purchased from a local restaurant to the Cinema to eat before and/or during the movie.

If takeout is brought, a ticket to the movie is $5.00. If a patron would like to see the movie without having brought dinner, the regular ticket price of $7.00 applies.

Patrons who preorder tickets to “Rubber” online and who present their confirmation email to participating restaurants will receive a percent off of their takeout bill (pickup only). Participating restaurants include: Boyz from Italy, Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, Caribbean Restaurant and Eddie’s Paramount Diner. The Boyz from Italy and Fuji Japanese Steakhouse are offering 10 percent off of the order while the Caribbean Restaurant and Eddie's Paramound Diner are offering customers half off when they purchase a meal.

“Rubber” was directed by electro musician Quentin Dupieux and tells the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert, who inexplicably comes to life.

As Robert roams the landscape, he discovers that he possesses telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes without having to move. Leaving a swath of destruction across the desert, Robert becomes a chaotic force to be reckoned with. 

The New York Post writes “Picture Monty Python writing an unusually odd ‘Twilight Zone’ episode directed by surrealist Luis Buñuel. Or just empty your mind of all sense: This is

“Rubber” runs 82 minutes and is rated R (for some graphic imagery and language).

Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office by calling 315-337-6453, and online at www.romecapitol.com.
