ROME, NY — The Capitol Theatre is showing “Tol'able David” this weekend along with a full night of entertainment.

The 1921 silent film “Tol'able David” will be screened at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at the Capitol Theatre, 220 W. Dominick St.

A modern-day reworking of the David and Goliath tale, “Tol'able David” tells the story of the youngest child of a family of Virginia farmers who must discover his manhood after his father dies and a trio of escaped convicts cripples his brother. It will be shown in a 35mm archival print from the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
