A Man Called Ove, movie

Excellent film in old theater. Seats could be more comfortable, but quaint atmosphere. Good selection of films.

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!'

My favorite place to see a movie. I wish I could see them all! When I read about an unusual, topical, foreign or indie movie in the Globe, Rolling Stone or New York Times and am intrigued I hope the Cape Cinema will get it. They often do. The theatre is large, old fashioned and comfortable. The historic ceiling murals... More

What a great local cinema! One movie only, lasting for about two weeks. Movies that are not typically shown in the malls. Only ten minutes of previews, with NO adverts. Chair pillows distributed upon request. Hand-painted ceiling motif. This place is a throwback to movie theatres as they were is mid-20th century. What fun!

Driving up to the cinema, the road is lined with trees and lots of blooms. The outside looks like a church but when you walk into the theatre, you are treated to a beautiful ceiling mural of comets, galaxies and constellations. The chairs are covered with white fabric which is something you do not see. Ticket prices are reasonable, being... More

Funky theater that features the latest movies that are NOT shown at your local Cineplex. Great popcorn that is cooked on premises

The Cape Cinema might be the ultimate summer movie theatre. Great murals on the ceiling. Directors' chairs for seats. Generally better art and indie films. A perfect evening or rainy afternoon on the Cape.

This is a great movie theater which seats about 350 people. There is a wonderful painted ceiling by Rockwell Kent and a great historical feel to the place. The building is a simple design with wooden, art deco chairs as seating. Ticket prices are reasonable and the refreshments surprisingly good value compared to the big cineplexes which usually charge an... More

This historic cinema (movie house) is part of a larger cultural complex, off of Route 6A, in Dennis, MA. It is without a doubt the BEST place to see a Movie on the Cape - it is the local "art house" cinema complex.
