Cinema screens horror remake ‘Suspiria’


Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will present the supernatural horror movie “Suspiria” each day from Friday, Dec. 14-Thursday, Dec. 20. 

Based upon the 1977 movie of the same name, “Suspiria,” was directed by Luca Guadagnino.

The movie stars Dakota Johnson as young American dancer who arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for a world-renowned dance company. When she vaults to the role of lead dancer, the woman she replaces breaks down and accuses the company’s female directors of witchcraft.

Meanwhile, an inquisitive psychotherapist and a member of the troupe uncover dark and sinister secrets as they probe the depths of the studio’s hidden underground chambers. The movie also stars Tilda Swinton in three different roles, as well as Mia Goth, Angela Winkler, Ingrid Caven, and Sylvie Testud.

“Suspiria” was awarded “Best Special Effects” and “Best Original Song” at the 2018 Venice Film Festival.

The Detriot News writes that “’Suspiria’ casts quite a spell.”

“Suspiria” runs 152 minutes and is rated R (for disturbing content involving ritualistic violence, bloody images and graphic nudity, and for some language including sexual references).

Admission is $7, $6 for students and military, and $5 for Capitol Friends. Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol box office (315-337-6453) and online at

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 4 and 6:45 p.m., Sunday at 1 and 3:30 p.m., and Monday-Thursday at 6:45 p.m. This movie will include captions for the hearing-impaired for the Friday 4 and Sunday 6:45 show times.
