The Lovecapades are a British/American eclectic alternative pop rock band that has been gigging relentlessly in the Western states; taking time out only to record their latest EP. This new CD, along with the band’s image, quality music, and powerful live shows, have quickly attracted a growing fan base and the attention and praise of industry insiders. 

The band has shifted thousands of units, and has also been fortunate enough to work on furthering their expansion with members of Sony Music Entertainment and XL Recordings. The band has toured the UK and Western USA, playing big venues such as Hard Rock Cafe, and sharing the stage with please workpopular bands over hundreds of shows. For more information visit their   facebook page:

Despicable Me tells the story of a super villain and his quest to outdo his arch rivals.  But when his latest scheme results in him adopting three young girls, his plans soon go awry. He must take them to ballet, to sell cookies and he must tuck them in at night. With his heart melted and his plans near ruins he must choose a path in life. Despicable Me is a movie that the whole family will enjoy and love.

Napoleon Dynamite and Archie Crisanto

better napoleaon  archie good picture

This Friday get ready for another incredible Movie Under the Stars. We will start off the evening with a live performance by Archie Crisanto. Archie is a native of Salem Oregon, and is now living in the Utah Valley. We could not be any happier to have him perform for us. Archie has recently been on tour performing throughout the southern states. His blues rock sound echoes many of the greats; early Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan,and The Black Keys.

In honor of our movie, Napoleon Dynamite, we are asking our audience to dress up as their favorite character from Napoleon Dynamite. The best dressed audience members will receive a fantastic prize. This movie is the story of a young man named Napoleon Dynamite and his fight against the social norms of high school to help his friend win class presidency. Not only is this a movie that most can relate to but it is also a movie that can make you laugh at every line.

Don't forget to bring your puffy sleeves, your boondoggles and of course your moon boots to Movie Under the Stars Friday night. See you there!!

The First Movie of the 2011 Season

The Capitol Preservation Board is thrilled to present the 1st movie of the 2011 season of Movie Under the Stars. In partnership with the Utah Film Commission, we are proud to present the locally produced film; The Sandlot. Not only is it a Utah crowd favorite for its fantastic one-liners, but also for the meaningful story of the bonds of summer and friendship.

As previously blogged in our Movie Under the Stars questions and answers post, it is wise to arrive early so you can secure that perfect patch of lawn. While you are saving your spot, enjoy a live musical performance from John Allred. John grew up in West Hartford Connecticut and is now spreading his music to Utah.

All musical performances will begin at 7:30 PM. Then at dusk we will begin our featured film. Come and enjoy free popcorn and the magic of Movie Under the Stars!
