The Capawock is listed in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac as part of the Levenson Circuit of Boston. Run by Joe Levenson, the circuit at the time consisted of 12 theatres including the Playhouse in Edgartown, the Coland and the Strand in Oak Bluff, and the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline.

The Capawock is currently the only theatre in Massachusetts to exhibit the series of opera performances from LaScala and 2 other theatres in Italy, run by Emerging Pictures and Screenvision.

The street view and address is incorrect. The address should be 45 Main Street.

The Capawock each September is host to the Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival: There are photos of its exterior and interior on our Facebook Page:

i was there last week. it shows movies 2 to 3 times per day in the afternoon and late evening. the small staff allowed me to walk into the plain auditorium and snap a few pix. they said it has 220 pictures as correctly stated above. the other staff member thought it had 248 seats…he was corrected with 220. perhaps they did a handicapped remodel?
