Things to Do on Cape Ann: Cape Ann Cinema & Stage in Gloucester

No place more comfortable to watch a movie than your sofa. Except for the Cape Ann Cinema & Stage, where comfy couches and armchairs fill the whole room, and you can even bring or order food from local restaurants. The cinema also sells great candy, ice cream, brownies, frozen chocolate-covered bananas, and popcorn. It’s long shown independent and foreign films, and now also shows new releases. The owner loves to hold special events, like Oscar parties, Beer and Bad Movie Night, Halloween festivals and the like. Only problem is, then you have to get up and go home.
