The deco painted ceiling and fresh popcorn really upped the ante for this delightful theatre hidden away from the main road. A single auditorium with most glorious painted ceiling and very comfortable red leather chairs, the theatre was as fun as the movie.

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!

Miss the old seats with covers, but still a trip down memory lane theater. No surround sound. Sad but quaint. Concessions available as well as pillows to make movie experience more comfy.

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.

The Cape Cinema has a mural on its ceiling painted by Rockwell Kent. It is an amazing piece of art. The movies they show are lesser known quality films that usually don't play at the larger chain theaters. Everything is comfortable old school, except the...More
