The Olympia Film Society (OFS) and its historic Capitol Theater have been pivotal cultural landmarks in Olympia, Washington, for over four decades. Established in 1980, the Olympia Film Society began as a collective of film enthusiasts and community members dedicated to showcasing independent, international, and classic films. Their passion for diverse cinematic experiences led to the acquisition of the Capitol Theater in 2010, a historic venue built in 1924.
The Capitol Theater stands as a symbol of architectural grandeur, boasting a design that reflects the opulence of its era. With its ornate interior, including a grand proscenium arch and balcony, the theater was repurposed by the Olympia Film Society to serve as a hub for a wide array of cultural events, primarily centered around film.
