ST. HELENA — The Cameo Cinema will celebrate the end of Prohibition with a party on Dec. 5. The date marks the 80th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

On Dec. 5, 1933, Utah was the 36th state to ratify the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th Amendment and ended Prohibition, the law of the land in the United States since Jan. 16, 1920.

Cameo Cinema owner Cathy Buck said the party will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Martin Showroom, 1350 Main St., turned temporarily into a “speakeasy” with hors d’ oeuvres by Meadowood chef Christopher Kostow and what Buck is calling “Prohibition cocktails,” gin drinks and Jack Daniels whiskey.

At 8:30 p.m., the party moves to the Cameo where guests will be entertained by a live “mini” Cirque du Soleil-like show, made up of eight to 10 circus performers giving the audience a “dramatic mix of circus acts and street entertainment.”

Buck said the group will include sword swallowers and those who perform on a slack rope, adding, “It’s a live show, the first time on the Cameo stage, and very cool.”  

Tickets are $80 per person or $150 per couple and are limited to 140. Tickets available at the Cameo box office, 1340 Main St.

    There have been other live shows in the theater in the early days soon after the theater was built in 1913 as the G&G Theater.
