I went recently at Cape Cinema in Dennis for a family night to the movies which I thought would be a fun time... We have been to the Cinema both in Dennis and Hyannis. We chose to go to Dennis this particular night which was a poor decision ( go to Hyannis, worth the drive) Buying tickets and watching the... More

It's not a usual destination, so it's always great when I do go. The film offerings are eclectic. The theater itself is a bit of time travel. It's so comfortable you can really enjoy yourself and not feel shoe-horned into your seat, or have your feet stick to the floor from sticky stuff that's been spilled. And usually your fellow...

This is such a classic! And such a different experience from the usual cineplex type experience. There's usually only one movie playing and it's usually one of the indie or off-beat films. You know it's going to be a different type of experience from the moment you drive into the parking lot. When you walk in the door, you are... More

If you go to the Cape Cinema expecting the "amenities" of a multiplex you'll be disappointed. If you want an alternative where you're able to catch Indie, foreign, or simply "non-box office smash" movies this is the place to go. The seats are covered with white cotton (perhaps to hide the fact that they're older) and not the most comfortable... More

I have loved this cinema for years. It is the quintessential movie going experience that hardens back to a more glamorous time. The one screen with the living room chairs to watch the movie is quite enjoyable. The movies are typically indie films and are such a nice change from the mega movie plex experience. The popcorn is usually fresh... More

The best movie theater on Cape Cod, with it's Art Deco interior and outstanding first run films. This isn't a movie theater it is an experience

The Cape Cinema is a great theater. My only suggestion is upgrading the process to buy tickets in advance or online to eliminate incredibly long lines!

This is my favorite Cape film theater with the most wonderful movies. I love that they get foreign films and other movies before they hit the rest of the surrounding theaters. Oh and the funky seats are roomy and comfortable.

Seating not the most comfortable but worth it for the old fashioned feel. Saw Forest Gump there and 500 Days of Summer. Great movies for the venue. Loved the $3 popcorn!

I have reviewed both the Chatham Orpheum Theater and the Cape Cinema in Dennis as they are both charming theaters in themselves and worth a visit. The Cape Cinema is located down a curving drive past the Dennis Theater. Plenty of free parking but it is an unpaved and could be difficult for people with ambulation issues. It is located... More
