From award winning director Kenneth Lonergan (Margaret) comes the story of the solitary life of Boston janitor Lee (Casey Affleck), In their small Massachusetts fishing village, Lee's world is shaken following the death of his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler), when he is named sole guardian of his 16-year-old nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). He returns to Manchester to care for Patrick, and once there, is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife (Michelle Williams). The past and present are seamlessly woven together, crafting a tension-filled tale that deftly eschews sentimentality in favor of penetrating emotional insight. (R 137 min.)

Cape Cinema Chair Restoration

The Cape Cinema and the Cape Cod Center for the Arts (CCCA) are pleased to announce the launch of a campaign to restore the original 1930 Paul T. Frankl chairs at the Cape Cinema. We are committed to maintaining the original integrity of the chairs while improving their comfort and appearance.

The cost for each antique chair to be restored is $600, and we are giving our valued patrons the opportunity to contribute through endowing the restoration of a chair. Donations are tax deductible contributions to the CCCA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and every $600 donation receives:

  • 💺  Free admission to most movies at the Cape Cinema for a year!
  • 💺  Their name etched on a plaque on the armrest of the chair!
  • 💺  Affirmation that they are part of the Cape Cinema's ongoing legacy!

Synthomas Upholstery of Hyannis has been chosen for this project and has rebuilt a prototype on view in the Cape Cinema lobby. If you have a preference for seating in a particular section of the theater and want your name on a chair in that section, please come to the Cape Cinema box office and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If you are unable to contribute the full amount to endow a chair, please know that any tax deductible contribution will be greatly appreciated. We look forward to public participation in this fundraising campaign by all who are supportive of preserving our historic building and one of the Cape’s most valuable assets.

Give the gift of chair restoration! Holiday Gift Cards are available if you'd like to endow a chair on behalf of a lucky someone. Contact or call 508 385 5644.

If you would prefer to donate by check, you can download a sponsorship form which also includes more information about the chair restoration project.
