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.

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!'

Great place to see a movie. On the historical theatre grounds of Dennis Village. Special movies picked to view- foreign,historical,documentaries etc... Enjoy the charm of Cape Cod.

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....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...More
