It opened in 1916 as Chatham’s first and only movie house.The Chatham Orpheum Theater was a magical place for 72 years – a year-round destination where generations of Chatham families and summer visitors could enjoy films. In 1938, the building was purchased by Interstate Theaters Corporation and was known as the Chatham Theater until 1987, when it ceased operations.

Now it’s back, better than ever! The Chatham Orpheum Theater opened to the public as a non-profit cinema on July 26, 2013 … bringing movies back to Main Street in the most state-of-the-art Movie Theater on Cape Cod. Every facet of this jewel box movie house and cultural center is unique, affordable, and community driven.

The Orpheum offers creative alternative programming for children, elders, and families.

The Orpheum’s interior is tastefully designed in traditional Cape Cod style, and the vaulted lobby showcases great works of created by notable local artists, including Hans de Castellane’s signature mural, The After Party. There is a small café style seating area where you can enjoy a coffee beer or wine. There is also the usual fare of sodas, popcorn with real butter and unique treats created by local Chatham confectioners.

The concession stand doubles as the box office. The food is PUB style and very good and you can even take your meal and drinks into the theater.
