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.

The Girl With A Bracelet

Lise (16 years old) is accused of murdering her best friend. As the trial starts, her parents stand right by her side. But once her secret life is revealed in court, the truth becomes indistinguishable.

“I love you” means nothing. Everyone says “I love you”. A young girl called to the witness stand casually drops these disarmingly simple words that are enough to give one chills. That is a recurring feeling throughout this unusually precise courtroom drama, where words and their power are at the center of attention. In this case, the legal proceedings become the ritual of a society putting its own youth on trial. (Locarno Film Festival)

The Invisible Witness

A locked-room mystery with a twist: A slickly successful businessman wakes up next to his dead lover and becomes the chief suspect. His defense lawyer’s never lost a case, but can even she help him?

“When I woke up, the nightmare began.” So begins the account of Adriano Doria (Riccardo Scamarcio), a wealthy Italian entrepreneur, describing the murky events of the worst night of his life, when he discovers himself in a resort hotel room with a nasty cut on his forehead and the lifeless body of his young mistress, Laura (Miriam Leone), lying on the floor amidst a pile of scattered banknotes. Though he protests his innocence, Adriano is the obvious prime suspect. With just hours to go before his arrest, he arranges a meeting with Virginia Ferrara (Maria Paiato), a notoriously tough attorney who has never lost a case, to plan his defense strategy and find evidence to exonerate him. Largely told in flashback, this noirish thriller from director Stefano Mordini recreates the days of intrigue that lead up to that terrible night as guilt-ridden Adriano, still in love with his wife, tries to break off the affair with Laura while on a clandestine trip to the mountainous Trentino region—until fate intervenes and forever alters their lives. As more facts are coaxed out by Virginia, the characters’ motivations begin to blur until no one is quite who they first seemed, leading to a pulse-pounding conclusion that will leave audiences guessing until the final shot.

Von Rydingsvard’s work is held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, but she may be best-known for work in public spaces – imposing pieces painstakingly crafted.
