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.

Martin Eden

Adapted from a 1909 novel by Jack London yet set in a provocatively unspecified moment in Italy’s history, Martin Eden is a passionate and enthralling narrative fresco in the tradition of the great Italian classics. Martin (played by the marvelously committed Luca Marinelli) is a self-taught proletarian with artistic aspirations who hopes that his dreams of becoming a writer will help him rise above his station and marry a wealthy young university student (Jessica Cressy). The dissatisfactions of working-class toil and bourgeois success lead to political awakening and destructive anxiety in this enveloping, superbly mounted bildungsroman. Winner of the Best Actor prize at the Venice Film Festival and the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The film explores the lives and careers of renowned African Americans who emigrated to Paris, including Josephine Baker, James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Beauford Delaney, Augusta Savage, and Lois Mailou Jones, and includes rare home movie footage of Henry Ossawa Tanner in Paris.

We go behind the scenes as the Manresa crew attempts to stage nine major meals over 10 days in the world’s most cinematic venues, alongside culinary superstars, with the world watching (and tasting) — all to celebrate 15 years of Manresa excellence by doing what Chef Kinch and his team do best: creating meals and experiences worthy of those three stars.

Vinyl Nation

The vinyl record renaissance over the past decade has brought new fans to a classic format and transformed our idea of a record collector: younger, both male and female, multicultural. This same revival has made buying music more expensive, benefited established bands over independent artists and muddled the question of whether vinyl actually sounds better than other formats.

Vinyl Nation digs into the crates of the record resurgence in search of truths set in deep wax: Has the return of vinyl made music fandom more inclusive or divided? What does vinyl say about our past here in the present? How has the second life of vinyl changed how we hear music and how we listen to each other?
