The Dreamland is the only full-service movie theater on the island. Long a landmark, the theater was shut for many years as it was in dire need of renovation and no suitable parties could be found. Finally the Dreamland Theater Foundation was founded to completely rebuild this antique building that has housed so much Nantucket history in its various forms over the years. The theater was expanded to have two screening areas, stages for theater productions and public meeting rooms. A wonderful effort, I only gave it a 4 rating because of the relatively small size of the main screen and the discomfort of the seats.

We have been to the theater there other years and have enjoyed it, but this time didn't think to buy tickets in advance for the movie, so unfortunately when we wanted tickets, the movie was sold out. Because there was a special tribute to Michael Douglas and Robert DiNiro the weekend we were there, there was nothing playing at all. If you want to see a movie, be sure to buy your tickets early and be sure there is something scheduled. It's a very small theater, and the tickets go fast, especially on a rainy day.

Great use of space. Dreamland Theatre was established to create a space that can be used for both movies and theatre. It's a beautiful facility with two theatres, one has traditional movie seats and the other uses Director Chairs on risers to provide stadium seating.
