A movie house built in 1940 and closed for more than three decades screened its first movie since 1986 to a sold-out crowd.
The new Capri movie theater in Jackson’s Fondren community opened Saturday night.
One hundred people went online to buy tickets to the theater’s first showing of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home.’
Developers have been working on the theater and nearby tiki bar and bowling alley for the series of building on State Street.
The theatre has a 40-foot-screen, Dolby 7.1 sound, a state-of-the-art digital projector, and reclining lounge seats.
