About Olympia Film Society
The Olympia Film Society (OFS) was founded in 1980 by a local group of film enthusiasts who sought to share their love of cinematic art with the community. More than thirty years later, OFS continues to strive to enliven and enrich our community by presenting and fostering the development of independent and underrepresented film, music, and allied arts. The historic Capitol Theater is home to OFS and many friends and fans.  Their movie palace of 1924 is located in heart of downtown Olympia's Historic Theater District the hub of entertainment from great restaurants, peaceful parks, and shops.  OFS takes pride in preserving the historic purpose of the Capitol Theater through multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary programming providing volunteer opportunities for those interested in giving back to their community, meeting new people, or just looking for something to do with friends and family. OFS fosters arts in the community with live and special events, weekly film series and the annual Olympia Film Festival celebrating 29 years this November 9-19.
