In lieu of mainstream Hollywood movies, the Capri Community Film Society screens an eclectic mix of contemporary independent and foreign films at its movie house, The Capri Theatre. In addition to the latest releases, the society also finds time to project repertory classics such as Vertigo and The African Queen back on the big screen. Besides indie and old-school cinema, the 1941-built theatre invites children to animated summer matinees and occasionally hosts directors for Q&As following their movies.
Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation in the basement of an office building, Pure Barre has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Dancer, choreographer, and fitness buff Carrie Rezabek Dorr founded Pure Barre more than a decade ago in Birmingham, MI. Since then, Carrie has traveled around the country, hopping from gym to gym demonstrating the innovative program that draws techniques from ballet. Much like angering a witch with a penchant for frog spells, performing the Pure Barre technique can be a fast and effective way to transform your body. Motivating music slices through the 60-minute workouts, each of which utilizes a ballet barre and small isometric movements designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
