ABOUT

History

For more than 80 years, the Cape Cinema in Dennis, Massachusetts has operated as a truly unique venue for movies, performance events and live music. The Cinema was founded in 1930 by Edna B. Tweedy and Raymond Moore, three years after Moore founded the Cape Playhouse. The building's exterior was designed by Alfred Easton Poor and modelled after the South Congregational Church in Centerville, Massachusetts. The auditorium is designed in the style of Art Deco and includes 317 individual arm chairs of black lacquer and tangerine suede produced by the Frankl Galleries in New York. Moore and Tweedy commissioned American painter and illustrator Rockwell Kent to design a 6,400 square foot mural for the auditorium's ceiling, featuring a representation of the heavens and constellations, and it was installed by set designer Jo Mielziner.



Since 1986, the Cape Cinema has operated as an art house specializing in independent American and international film, simulcasts of the Metropolitan Opera and National Theatre, and live music performances. The Raymond Moore Foundation oversees the 26-acre grounds surrounding the Cape Cinema, the Cape Playhouse and the Cape Cod Museum of Art.
