Virtual Screenings

While we are closed we are going to do our best to bring the movies to you! Starting on April 10th we will be able to begin directing you towards streamable content that will allow you to help us stay afloat in these difficult times. Please read the details below before moving onto any show and if any questions you have are not sufficiently answered, please feel free to contact us.


The virtual screening room is not something set up through The Cape Cinema directly. Instead we are working with distributors who will be providing film rentals for streaming purposes on a case-by-case basis. As such the ticket costs may vary, but we will present such details for each offering we can provide. Please note that there is no way for us to handle member pricing for these tickets as this is done differently than normal. For these screenings the distributor is getting the money from you and then paying us a percentage of that (normally this happens the other way around). As such we cannot accept any gift cards for these screenings.


Do not worry however! For those of you concerned about what this means for your memberships or gift cards, we have you covered. Gift cards will still be usable once we re-open and you can make it back into the Cinema. Additionally, we currently plan on extending memberships after this is all over to help make up for lost time.


As you purchase the rental/access to these films, please make sure to read the instructions provided by each individual distributor. It is likely that you will need to make an account in order to watch the films and you will have limited time-frames with which to watch it. We will do our best to provide any information here about each film, but do keep in mind we are not in direct control over those accounts, the streaming, or the transactions.


If you have any questions about acessing these films or how to get these films to cast to your television, please head on over to our FAQs page. If you cannot find the answers you are looking for there, please send us an e-mail, We will do our best to keep the FAQs up to date with any major questions we get as things progess.

Up From The Streets

A feature length documentary that looks at the culture of New Orleans through the lens of music. New Orleans has a distinct history as a result of its political and social history. There is a thread that runs through the city that can be heard from the drumming at Congo Square in the 1700’s through to today’s vibrant music scene. The music of this city is a powerful form of expression. It was a vehicle to communicate a desire for freedom, express frustration of the injustices of segregation and Jim Crow laws, a healing force that helped bring the city back from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and is still a vital form of expression against ongoing cultural & racial biases. Executive Producer Terence Blanchard and Director Michael Murphy, show how the culture of the city is reflected in its music, how music impacts culture; and how even in the darkest of times, music lifts and unites.

Crescendo

When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck (Peter Simonischek, Toni Erdmann) accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of sheer unsolvable problems. Having grown up in a state of war, suppression or constant risk of terrorist attacks, the young musicians from both sides are far from able to form a team. Lined up behind the two best violinists – the emancipated Palestinian Layla and the handsome Israeli Ron – they form two parties who deeply mistrust each other, on and off-stage alike. Will Sporck succeed and make the young people forget their hatred, at least for the three weeks until the concert? With the first glimmer of hope, however, the political opponents of the orchestra show them how strong they are…

Beyond The Visible

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

A White, White Day

In a remote Icelandic town, a bereaved former police chief (Ingvar Sigurdsson) begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died two years earlier in a tragic accident. Gradually, his obsession with uncovering the truth begins to take over his life, leading to dangerous consequences for both himself and his loved ones. Iceland’s 2020 official Oscar submission for Best International Feature Film, A WHITE, WHITE DAY combines classic thriller tropes with director Hlynur Palmason’s distinctly Nordic sensibility, resulting in “storytelling that’s both powerful and fresh throughout, marking him as a talent to watch” (The Hollywood Reporter).
