Cape Ann Community Cinema’s New Home Open!


Anyone (and their guests) for whom downtown Gloucester is convenient this weekend is invited to come check out the new Cape Ann Community Cinema space this Friday (after the fireworks, ’round 10:30pm) and Saturday (after 9:30pm), after the 7:30pm show of Sita Sings The Blues. Saturday, we will show (in HD) a spooktacular hit from the summer of 1984. No cover, maybe a little Guitar Hero (yes, PJ, I’m getting Rock Band 2 for you), full concession menu, including ice cream, pretzels and White Castle cheeseburgers.

We’re at 21 Main Street in Gloucester, above the St. Peter’s Club and Mystery Train Records. Free parking on the street and at the St. Peter’s lot across Rogers Street (ours is the tower of mustard gold concrete).

You can get the July schedule at http://www.CapeAnnCinema.com.

Hope to see you soon!

Do You Know About CACC?

Do you know about Cape Ann Community Cinemas and their 60 films in 33 days project at The Gloucester Stage Company 267 East Main Street (a couple doors down from Last Stop Variety on the way down to Rocky Neck)?

I’ll be featuring their daily lineup of film schedules each day throughout their run.

Thanks go to Robert Newton who brought it to my attention.

This from the Mass Bay Film Project and Festival Website-

“First and foremost, we are film fans, and we like to get people excited about watching films. Not necessarily in the “I can crank my new home theater system can so loud that it will make you have to go to the bathroom” kind of way, but in ways that matter. We bring independently produced films to local audiences (and theatre owners) who might not otherwise discover them, and whenever we can, we’ll bring the folks who made the films, too. And the more people we can excite enough about the filmmaking process to want to pick up a camera and tell a story of their own, the better.
