Loved this theatre, loved the movie. Unfortunately, found it hard to walk after the film...the seats are so uncomfortable! I recommend bringing a pillow to sit on if you go.

The movie theatre is part of 3 building campus, consisting of an art museum, playhouse, and movie theatre. It was constructed in the early 1900s and its art deco ceiling makes the visit well worthwhile. First quality movies are shown with comfortable arm chair seating.

This is a great chance to see some of the lesser shown and Indy movies as well as Live at the Met. The cinema itself, part of the Cape Cod Center for the Arts, is a little rough for wear. It was clean but sure...More
