Crime Pays – into a Documentary Double-Bill of Local History in Gordon Square

Sun 3/18 @ 4PM

In support of the Cleveland Police Museum, the Capitol Theatre in Gordon Square has been partnering with the Lakewood-based StoryWorks media company. They will show on the big screen some of this region’s more sordid and sensational tales, with the filmmakers and historians present — and maybe some cops, so no cutting ahead in line!

Dusk & Shadow — The Mystery of Beverly Potts is an Emmy-winning retelling of one of Cleveland’s most mystifying “cold case” missing-persons incidents from the 1950s, in which 10-year-old Beverly Potts went missing in the vicinity of Halloran Park on the West Side.

Doris O’Donnell’s Cleveland is a multivolume StoryWorks series based on the reminiscences of one of the city’s most enduring female beat reporters. An installment here shows the newshen’s-eye-view of how organized crime unraveled in the city in the 1960s and 1970s.

Tickets are $10 at the door.
