2020 SUMMER FUN ON THE CAMPUS
EIGHT WEEKS OF UNIQUE ART & ENTERTAINMENT ON THE CAMPUS OF THE CAPE COD CENTER FOR THE ARTS
With The Cape Playhouse 2020 season postponed, the Cape Cinema showings on hold, and activities and hours at the Cape Cod Museum of Art limited – all due to Covid-19 – the three organizations are collaborating to present two unique outdoor programs for the enjoyment of the community during the months of July and August. Adults and children of all ages will be welcome to visit the historic 22-acre site located on Route 6A in Dennis to partake in a nostalgic drive-in movie or simply stroll the grounds and be inspired by the works of local artists. The campus has been a hub for cultural activities for over 90 years, and this summer will be no different. Stringent measures will be taken to respect social distancing and good hygiene for the health and safety of all visitors and staff.
THE POPCORN POP-UP
The large central parking lot on the campus will be transformed into a nostalgic pop-up drive-in movie theater every Wednesday night during July and August – featuring family favorite films. Freshly popped popcorn straight from the Cape Cinema will be a staple on movie nights and picnic boxes from local restaurants and beverages from the Playhouse concession will be available for purchase. Modest charges will be applied per person for each movie and the proceeds will be shared among the three campus organizations.
DENNIS ART STROLL
A free pop-up outdoor art exhibit of “floating shapes” with diverse artistic interpretations by local artists will be on view for pure artistic pleasure and inspiration – and bidding – for those interested in purchasing a work of art. The five foot long shapes will form a trail from the Museum to The Playhouse, via the Cinema. The artists will benefit from 50% of the proceeds from the sale of his/her work and the remaining funds will be shared among the three campus organizations.

The support will enable these three cultural beacons to open their campus to the Cape Cod community for education, inspiration, and entertainment.
