Capitol Theatre makes cameo in “Semi-Pro”
FLINT, MI — The new film Semi-Pro includes scenes filmed at the Capitol Theatre, as initially reported last May. The scenes include one of the theater’s front facade indicating that the movie Mother, Jugs and Speed is showing and a scene involving Will Ferrell, playing Flint Tropics owner Jackie Moon, in a dumpster alongside the alley side of the theater talking to Woody Harrelson playing Monix, one of the players on his team. Scenes involving the theater showing a closed circuit telecast of the Mega Bowl did not make the final cut on the film, but it could appear in a future DVD release of the film.
