ROME, N.Y.-If you’re into old movies from the silent film era, then Capitolfest is for you this weekend.
The festival started Friday evening at the Capitol Theatre on West Dominick Street in Rome.
Viewers from Toronto, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, and all over come to Rome each year for the festival.
Films shown come from the Silent Film Era, which include the 1910’s, 1920’s and 1930’s.
The Theatre’s Development Director Kylie Pierce tells NewsChannel 2: “We're getting more (people) in the years since we have been doing it. But we get an awful lot of people who come from other places, mainly because the things we are showing are rare enough that people haven't necessarily seen them in their lifetime and they are big hardcore movie fans”.
Capitolfest runs through Sunday. The first movie starts at 9:00 am. Tickets are $20.00.
