Film stars Chloë Sevigny as infamous Lizzie Borden


Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will present the biographical drama “Lizzie” from Friday, Oct.19, through Wednesday, Oct. 24. 

“Lizzie” stars Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkably violent act in 1892. The movie also stars James Sheridan, Fiona Shaw, Kim Dickens, and Denis O’Hare.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that “Lizzie” is “A sensitive and stylish take on the legend,” while The Wrap writes “The stylish and haunting Lizzie paints a provocative portrait of a woman driven by passions and left with few options in a society that gave her little agency.” 

“Lizzie” runs 84 minutes and is rated R (for violence and grisly images, nudity, a scene of sexuality, and some language). 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 4:15 and 7:15 p.m., Sunday at 1:15 and 4:15 p.m., and Monday-Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. The Friday 4:15 and Sunday 1:15 show times will include captions for the hearing-impaired.
