Cape Ann Community Cinema

Opened on April 20, 2007 and operated by the Massachusetts Bay Film Project, this single-screen 75-seat cinema was located upstairs at 21 Main Street in Gloucester. It specialized in Independent films. The seating can be expanded to 125 for special events and film festivals. In August 2012 a second screen was added, which seated 40 persons.

It vacated the premises and re-opened in temporary premises at 68 Rogers Street, Gloucester, MA. In 2020 it relocated to 37 J Whistlestop Mall, Rockport, MA 01966. It now operates with 3-screens which have 12-seats, 24-seats and 36-seats.

Although it is an “upstairs house”, access to the auditorium on the second floor is ADA-compliant with an elevator available. The space is a former club function room with a dance floor.

When did this open?

I think it opened early this year, but the film organization which runs it dates back awhile. The basic admission currently is $9, but members of the film organization get a discount, as do senior citizens.

This cinema is currently part of the Opera in Cinemas network which features performances from various European opera houses. The other 2 cinemas in MA in the network are the Loring Hall in Hingham and the Capawock on Martha’s Vineyard island.

The second screen is not in the same location, though. It is a couple of blocks away and should probably be considered a separate theatre. The second screen is known as Film Haven while this original screen will be called the Movie Loft.

By the way, the address for the second screen is 11 Pleasant Street.
