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.


Un Film Dramatique

Commissioned as a dedicated artwork for the newly constructed Dora Maar middle school on the outskirts of Paris, Un Film Dramatique is a lively portrait of the first class to attend the school, filmed over the course of four years. The group of 22 middle schoolers discuss the drama of their daily lives and experiment with cameras and equipment. They are the film's subjects, and also its makers.

With a refreshingly uninhibited approach, Baudelaire (Letters to Max, The Anabasis of May...) offers a new perspective on the realities of our current socio-political moment that is both playful and purposeful. As the students debate the approaching elections and the immigration crisis, they also seek to answer a key political question--what are we doing here together?

Winner of top prizes at the BlackStar and New Orleans Film Festivals, this gripping social thriller offers a unique exploration of institutional racism and sexism from a Black female point of view.

Leona

"Leona" is an intimate, insightful, and moving film that tells the story of a young Jewish woman from Mexico City who finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love.

The Salt of Tears

Veteran filmmaker Philippe Garrel once again fashions a pinpoint-precise and economical study of young love and its prevarications, which ever so gradually blossoms into an emotionally resonant moral tale. Handsome Luc (Logann Antuofermo), following in his aging father’s footsteps to study the craft of furniture joining, doesn’t appear to have any trouble meeting and dating women; as the film opens he’s aggressively courting Djemila (Oulaya Amamra) at a Paris bus stop. Skeptical yet ultimately trusting, Djemila will not be Luc’s one and only. Constructed and composed with crystalline austerity, and co-written with Jean-Claude Carrière and Arlette Langmann—who collaborated on Garrel’s last two films, In the Shadow of Women (NYFF53) and Lover for a Day (NYFF55)—The Salt of Tears is a pocket portrait that demonstrates the persistent vitality of one of French cinema’s great observers of the callowness of youth.
