Soup's On 

When: Sun., March 29 2015
The Marx Brothers’ comic masterwork Duck Soup wasn’t a success in its era. In fact, there was some doubt the team would do another movie after the film laid an egg at the box office. (It was indeed the last time Zeppo Marx appeared onscreen with the troupe.) Only in the 1960s, with the Marx Brothers re-appraised and appreciated by rebellious college students for their anti-authoritarian antics, was Duck Soup elevated to the realm of a classic, for its warped and surreal humor. The movie screens at 10 a.m. today at the Capitol Theatre as part of the Sunday Classics Brunch & Movie Series. Tickets are $5. (Charles Cassady Jr.)
