Capitol Theatre to Celebrate Superman's 80th Anniversary with a Screening of 'Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut'

In honor of the 80th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman in a comic book, the Capitol Theatre has teamed up with the locally based Siegel and Shuster Society to present a special screening of Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut.

The new cut of the movie restores footage that Donner filmed before he was taken off the project.

Superman has roots in Cleveland; Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster worked on the first Superman sketches while living in Glenville.

The screening takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18. Following the screening, the Siegel and Shuster Society’s Mike Olszewski will lead a discussion. As a Superman birthday present to those in attendance, patrons will receive a special edition print by local artist Gary Dumm.

Tickets are $6.
