A great place to see current movies on Cape Cod. The seats are very comfortable and the interior of the theater is quite beautiful. The theater is certainly worth a detour.

Treat yourself to a cinematic experience unique and sublime. The painted ceiling alone is worth the trip. Go!

We look forward to attending movies at the Cape Cinema, in the unique atmosphere of the hand painted mural on the ceiling, and the arm chairs. We've enjoyed many movies that may not appear in your average theater. Love our cinema experiences.

My cousins took us to this cinema to see the Art Deco ceiling. The personnel said we could come back between shows to take some pictures of the ceiling. It was done in the 1930's!'
